In response to the current pandemic, this funder has changed the application guidelines and processes for its spring application round with the aim of supporting small and medium-sized charities, which may need extra assistance at this time.
For the current round, unrestricted grants of up to £5,000 will be available as one-off payments to assist registered charities in England and Wales:
- Whose last audited accounts show an income of less than £750,000.
- That can demonstrate the likelihood of increased demand for their services and/or can demonstrate a loss of anticipated income attributable to the pandemic.
The funder, which aims to improve the life chances of disadvantaged children aged 0-3 in England and Wales, supports early intervention and preventative work that will:
- Improve the reach to targeted groups of 0–3 year olds.
- Bring about improved defined outcomes for these targeted groups.
The deadline for applications is 28 April 2020, with grants to be awarded as soon as possible after the closing date.
