Priority for funding will be given to organisations providing services and support to older and vulnerable people as well as those with low and insecure incomes. We also invite applications from groups applying to support people of all ages with mental health issues.
We want to help organisations to respond to the unprecedented pressures that you and your clients will face as a result of Covid-19. We recognise that many of the services that you usually provide are not currently possible, including group activities, lunch clubs, day centres, community centres and face to face advice to those in need.
Our aim is to help organisations that can identify ways to continue to support people who are most at risk during prolonged periods of isolation through existing, new and where possible, collaborative solutions. We recognise there will be new challenges for communities who have additional pressures resulting from the economic impact of the outbreak.
We would like to encourage local groups to work together and would welcome joint applications with one application from a lead organisation.
We will support constituted charities and community groups based in Hertfordshire. The application process is straightforward, with a short application form. We aim to let applicants know quickly if they are successful.How to apply
