Our Coronavirus Disaster Relief Fund has already provided emergency grants exceeding £337,000, helping more than 90 local groups providing frontline support to those in greatest need. The fund was kick-started by our fundholders and boosted by the National Emergencies Trust appeal. HCF continues to raise further funds so that we can give support to voluntary groups providing care and support for elderly and vulnerable people hit by the social and economic impact of the coronavirus. We are now accepting applications for funding. Find out more HERE
To inform the next phase of our grant-making, we invited local charities and voluntary groups to tell us about their challenges, aspirations and emerging needs impacting their organisation and beneficiaries at this time. Thank you to everyone who completed our online survey and who took the time to talk to us. We are collating the responses and will communicate our findings in the near future.
Our Training and Development team have transformed their training and development opportunities into practical help delivered online.
