The Foundation is acutely aware of the impact that the current covid-19 crisis is having on our local communities and extends its deep sympathies to those directly impacted by the crisis. It is committed to providing support to the people and communities of the local area where it can make a positive difference.
We are currently looking at how we can further support both organisations and charities in the wider community during and after the covid-19 crisis.
The Trustees are currently in touch with local authorities and other stakeholders to try and understand where the current £250,000 of funding might be best spent to have the most positive impact.
The trustees will also consider what more it could do to support communities with the resources it currently has. Please monitor the website for when the next funding round is launched.
