Grants to support communities affected by coronavirus
Quartet Community Foundation is currently considering applications to their Wesleyan Foundation Fund, which will close October 22nd. Grants will be considered from charities and community groups that focus on supporting communities with issues caused by, and intrinsically linked to, the Covid 19 pandemic.
Grants can be awarded for applications demonstrating how the project will provide services and improve outcomes in one or more of the following areas:
- Mental Health
- Bereavement support
- PSE (Personal Social Education)
- Domestic Violence Support (including women’s refuges)
- Isolation / befriending / listening services
- The vulnerable and elderly
- Dementia / quality of life
- Social prescribing – alleviating the pressure from the NHS
- Getting back to work – innovative travel (cycle schemes) / reducing carbon footprint
- Employment – reskilling people (not so much those that support with CV writing but those that actively prepare people for a new job / new career, interview prep etc)
- Outdoor projects – making changes so that services can be delivered outside
- Wesleyan Foundation would like to support organisations and charities that focus on supporting Black/African Caribbean communities following the recent BLM conversations.
