Below is a list of funders who can fund projects that are responding to Covid-19. Please be sure to read and understand the guidance notes before applying to any of these programmes:
The Julie and Hans Rausing Trust - Charity Survival Fund
Next deadline: 27th July (5pm)
The Charity Survival Fund has been set up in response to Julia and Hans’ ongoing concern about Covid-19’s economic impact on charities. This £10m Fund will provide core funding to help charities, especially small and medium sized, to offset lost income in the current financial year.
The fund is open to UK registered charities that:
Have a beneficial area within the UK
Actively operate across one of the three areas prioritised by The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust: Health and Wellbeing, Welfare and Education, Arts and Culture
Have annual income below £5m
Have lost (or are forecast to lose) income due to Covid-19
Have not already received Covid-19 related funding from The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust
The purpose of this fund is to support childcare solutions that enable more accessible and affordable childcare for families. Funding will be available to develop solutions to the barriers parents and carers experience in accessing childcare. These barriers include the cost of childcare, the hours available and accessibility for children with additional support needs.
The Access to Childcare Fund will provide funding to services or projects that seek to address the challenges and barriers encountered and allow parents and carers to have time around the school day and in holidays safe in the knowledge that their child(ren) is being looked after and given opportunities to take part in activities, play or youth work experiences.
