Community Funding

A number of organisations established specific COVID-19 funds during 2020 to support people and organisations hit by the pandemic. The response for many of these organisations was overwhelming and the funds have been closed or suspended. Here are funds that are still active as at the beginning of February 2021. As and when we are aware of more funds becoming available this list will be updated.
