We’re here to help during the coronavirus crisis. If you would like to donate you can either click on Donate Now on this website or give through the National Emergencies Trust. Thanks to your generosity we’ve raised over £1 million and distributed more than £800,000 to small local causes!
As well as supporting urgent needs, we’re now giving grants to local charitable organisations to help them through the long, hard recovery from this crisis. We estimate that £30 million will be needed over the coming months and years to ensure that people and communities are supported. We know that not every charity will survive this crisis but every beneficiary deserves support so we’ll be targeting support to those most in need. You can read heart-warming stories from our grants here.
If you’re a charitable or community organisation in the West of England and want to apply for a grant, look at our grant application portal to see how we can help you. Our office is temporarily closed in line with national guidance but you can still phone for support – just leave a message on 0117 989 7700 and we’ll get back to you quickly, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
And if you’ve had a grant from us and you need to change how you use it in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, be reassured we’re listening to you and here to support you so please do get in touch.
