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.
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.
