The Common Call COVID Fund


An opportunity for Black-led charities and social enterprises, from the Common Call Covid Relief Fund, which has £300,000 available.

Black-led charities and social enterprises working in communities across the UK can apply for a grant package of £5,000 or £12,500 to help them:

  • Get better informed about their options (moving to new methods of delivery) post-Covid-19.
  • Develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies.
  • Test the viability of specific propositions.
  • Develop clear implementable action plans for such activity.

The Fund is specifically looking for organisations that are creating impact in underserved communities and providing services to people that have been adversely affected by the Covid crisis in terms of physical health, mental health and/or financial sustainability. The people supported should primarily be people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black.

The £300,000 fund includes contributions from Barclays, National Emergencies Trust, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Clothworkers’ Foundation and Comic Relief.
