Covid 19

We are aware that the Covid19 crisis is having an extreme and significant affect on the whole charitable sector.

We have therefore been reviewing our grant giving criteria for the next rounds in 2021 and beyond.

Grant Applications

In 2021, we are focussing on Homelessness and Refugee and Asylum Seekers – communities that have been disproportionately affected by Covid 19.

In 2022, we are focussing on the Arts because of the devastating impact Covid 19 continues to have within this sector.

We will continue to prioritise charities that work in BAME communities, in light of Black Lives Matter and the growing awareness that these communities are being disproportionately affected by the Covid 19 crisis.

To apply for a grant, your charity will also need to meet the relevant income and expenditure levelsplease check the Eligibility details to see which grant round is relevant for your charity.

Existing Grants

If your charity is in receipt of a grant, and is unable to complete the relevant work because of the impact of Covid 19, please get in touch.


To speed up the grant giving process, all our grants will now be made by bank transfer. You will therefore need to provide your charity’s bank account details on the application form.
