We’ve joined with hundreds of donors, philanthropists and small local causes to stand with those who’ve been hit hardest by the impact of Covid-19.
- Families needing food are getting help through grants to food projects, such as Keynsham Food Bank which is feeding thousands of local people through the lockdown. (32% of the coronavirus grants have gone to food projects)
- We’re also helping people get the 1-2-1 support they need. Paul’s Place is helping people with a disability get through what could be a very lonely time since the day centre was forced to close thanks to one of the grants. (29% of grants have gone to 1-2-1 support)
- Getting hold of essential items has become very difficult for many disadvantaged groups, such as homeless people, so we’re helping Feed The Homeless Bristol provide essential non-food items to newly homed rough sleepers during this coronavirus outbreak (14% of grants have gone towards providing essential items to people in need).
These are just three of the projects that have benefited from support. In total, over 100 small, local causes have now benefited from over £500,000 of Coronavirus 2020 Response Funding.
Your support and donations have already helped communities in Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire take action to help each other.
As we await news of what the new normal will look like, we’re busy in the background, working on a recovery strategy that we’ll share with you very soon.
