In March 2020 we created a £20 million emergency Covid Response Fund, in addition to our usual grant-making programmes, through which we have made over 430 grants totalling £13.3 million to date.
We prioritised organisations we had an existing funding relationship with and others where we know our support could make an important and immediate difference. Details of these are published on the 360Giving Covid-19 grants tracker , and you can read some case studies of organisations we’ve supported in our Review of Grant-making 2020/21.
Awards through the Covid Response Fund ended in December 2021.
We continually review how best we can support people and organisations in our sectors and will remain alert and responsive to the changing economic environment.
You can find our previous statements relating to support through the pandemic on the right, and we have compiled links to useful resources.
