Traditional fundraising activities has now been seriously reduced or even cancelled, whilst many organisations have to add additional services or changes to their infrastructure with less revenue. Numerous Funders have created emergency funding programmes for both regional and national level charitable works. These funds are to support charities to sustain their work, develop new ways of working (often online) and to provide emergency provisions and interventions.
These are only a few examples of various funding bodies setting aside revenue for organisations and community services.
There are of course various local funding pots specific to helping community services, which is vital for local areas. My advice is be careful to understand the criteria for local pots and make sure you read guidance notes, grants will be made quickly but there wont be enough money so an easy criteria mistake may cost you dearly.
