Community groups urged to apply for grant funding


Cumbrian charities and other voluntary organisations working to alleviate problems during the Coronavirus crisis are being urged to apply for grants.

Cumbria Community Foundation launched the Cumbria COVID-19 Response Fund in March to support communities affected by the coronavirus outbreak by helping local organisations to deliver vital support and services directly to vulnerable people. The charity has so far awarded £1.5m to more than 170 groups with grants ranging between £100 and £75,000.

The Fund has to date raised nearly £1.9 million with donations from local businesses alongside the National Emergencies Trust appeal and many individuals.

Funding is still available to directly support community organisations who are working at the grassroots and providing care to those who need it throughout the pandemic.

It will prioritise projects and organisations playing a vital role in helping and supporting communities, making sure people don’t go hungry, that their emotional wellbeing is being looked after as much as it is possible, and they have access to vital advice and guidance for the longer-term support they may need. It will also support projects that give young people the best chances to maximise their learning and employment.

Jenny Benson, Director of Programmes & Partnerships at Cumbria Community Foundation, said: “These groups are doing so much to tackle the effects of Coronavirus and the lockdown, which as we know have affected most seriously those people in the community who were already at a disadvantage.

“The funding can help to make a real difference to the lives of people in Cumbria and I urge any of the groups who are doing great work for the community to apply for a grant before the 10th November deadline.

“Our grants team are very supportive and if anyone has any questions about the process, please do get in touch with them for help.”
