Sylvia Waddilove Foundation UK

The Sylvia Waddilove Foundation UK has set up an emergency fund to help small to medium sized organisations that are struggling to manage the financial impact of COVID-19. The fund is intended to support organisations in a critical position due to loss of income or an increased demand for their services.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available.

What can the funds be used for:

  • Staff costs and other overheads (except where staff are not required and/or staff could have been furloughed) where income has been affected by COVID-19 or the lockdown;
  • Increased demand for services linked directly to COVID-19 or the lockdown;
  • Changes to working practices, such as the purchase of laptops or remote access technology, protective equipment to work safely with beneficiaries;
  • Deep cleaning of premises because of a confirmed case of COVID-19.

How to apply:

The Foundation does not accept applications or correspondence by post.

A short application form can be accessed by clicking here. Please return completed application forms to Please direct all inquiries to this email address.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying as a result of a drop in income and require a grant to meet critical costs: please briefly set out the organisation’s fixed expenditure and income, the amount of reserves (and how these are being used) and your income projections for the short to medium term.
