Infection Control Fund – does your organisation provide personal care in North East Lincolnshire?

North East Lincolnshire’s Adult Social Care department receives government funding through the Infection Control Fund. There is some element of discretion on how the funding can be used. It can include providing support on infection prevention and control measures to a broader range of care settings (for instance, community and day support services), supporting providers who face increased infection control costs as a consequence of their individual circumstances or due to effects of the pandemic, and other measures that the local authority could put in place to boost the resilience and supply of the adult social care workforce in their area to support effective infection control.

If your organisation provides personal care to individuals, the Adult Social Care team would like to hear from you as they are gathering a list of smaller providers who may be able to receive payments for assistance in the future. They are already in contact with larger providers so you do not need to register your interest if you have already received funding or support through this fund. You do not necessarily have to be CQC-registered.

If you think your organisation may be eligible for support, please email Amy Hallett at and we will pass the list of interested parties on to the Adult Social Care team.

How is your charity coping with the pandemic’s pressures?


The world is changing rapidly, and charities are under immense pressure to continue providing vital services for their beneficiaries. We are eager to uncover how the sector is coping with the crisis and ensure charity voices are heard by the government.

With charities left out of official statistics, the PBE Covid Charity Tracker has been the sector’s leading source of economic analysis throughout the coronavirus crisis. Your responses have helped us calculate the £10 billion funding gap charities are experiencing, as well as to estimate that 60,000 jobs may be at risk.

With 5-10 minutes of your time, your contribution will help us tell the government just how much the pandemic has impacted charities like yours.

Help us muster our widest response yet by filling in our survey and then sharing with others before Sunday 2 May when the survey closes.

Lloyds Bank Foundation open for unrestricted funding

Small and local charities in England and Wales helping people overcome complex social issues can now apply for two-year unrestricted grants of £50,000 from Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales. The funding will be open year-round, meaning charities can apply at a time that suits them and will not be restricted by deadlines.  

Many small and local charities have played a key role in supporting disadvantaged people and communities throughout the pandemic, demonstrating tremendous energy, flexibility, and professionalism in their response. The Foundation’s priority is to reach those charities tackling one of 11 complex social issues including:

  • Addiction and dependency 
  • Asylum seekers and refugees 
  • Care leavers 
  • Domestic abuse 
  • Homeless and vulnerably housed 
  • Learning disabilities 
  • Mental Health 
  • Offending, prison, and community service 
  • Sexual abuse and exploitation 
  • Trafficking and modern slavery 
  • Young Parents 

At least 25% of all funding this year will be allocated to charities led by and for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities, building on the Foundation’s commitment to racial equity as outlined in its strategy. We are looking to support charities where more than half of their Trustee Board self-identify as Black, Asian or minority ethnic, with an annual income of between £25,000 and £1m, and with a strong track record of helping people from minority communities and doing some work in one of the issue above.

Alongside unrestricted funding, successful charities will be supported by one of the Foundation’s regional managers, who will work with them to access a wide range of organisational development support to help meet identified needs. 

The Foundation wants to be open and transparent with charities by making clear in advance which charities and areas it is more likely to fund at any given time. This means that not all charities will be eligible to apply in all areas. To help with this, the Foundation has introduced regional priorities. 

It will consider local need, the prevalence of eligible small and medium sized charities, the nature of the region and the level of investment the Foundation has given to each complex social issue in that area, including its portfolio of live grants. Whether small charities can apply to the Foundation this year depends on which Local Authority they do the majority of their work in, and the complex social issue they are working to address. The Foundation reviews and updates these regional priorities every six months.
