It is recognised that organisations may need to work differently during these unprecedented times to ensure the needs of communities are met. The ‘Doing Things Differently’ grant programme, from Heart of England Community Foundation, support Birmingham, the Black Country, Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire based organisations through this difficult time.
There are grants of between £3,000 and £20,000 available to enable organisations to change the way they deliver their work to continue to meet the developing needs of their communities during Covid -19. This could include moving services to provide them digitally or redeploying staff to meet the changing needs of the community.
The funding is not to replace core costs, or a loss of income, if you have had to close your services due to Covid 19.This fund is for organisations who are deeply rooted in their community.
There is a rolling deadline for applications.
