We understand that in these difficult times charities and voluntary groups are seriously affected by the COVID – 19 outbreak and are trying to support people and communities to the best of their abilities. We want to reassure grant recipients that we will be flexible if you need to adapt the purpose of your grant now or in the future. Over the coming months we will be prioritising applications from organisations supporting people and communities during the current pandemic.
