The Sylvia Waddilove Foundation: UK COVID–19 Emergency Fund

Reopened

The Foundation has set up an emergency fund to help small to medium sized organisations who are struggling to manage the financial impact of COVID-19 either because of increased demand for their services or loss of income. The fund is targeted at organisations in a critical position.

Grants are for a maximum of £1,000.

What can the funds be used for:

  • Staff costs and other overheads (except where staff are not required and/or staff could have been furloughed) where income has been affected by COVID-19 or the lockdown;
  • Increased demand for services linked directly to COVID-19 or the lockdown;
  • Changes to working practices, such as the purchase of laptops or remote access technology, protective equipment to work safely with beneficiaries;
  • Deep cleaning of premises because of a confirmed case of COVID-19.
