Neighbourly are launching a series of micro-grants of up to £400 for good causes that are helping communities affected by the new Coronavirus outbreak. Early partners include M&S, Lidl, Aldi, Danone UK & Ireland and Coca-Cola European Partners, with an initial fund of nearly £500,000.
Grants will be awarded to existing members of Neighbourly in the UK and Ireland whose work involves supporting members of the community suffering economically, socially or from ill health as a result of the outbreak. This may include, but not be limited to, elderly people, those on low incomes and people at risk of food insecurity.
Grants are unrestricted and can go towards food provision, emergency supplies, practical support, running costs, transport and other essentials.
Neighbourly have designed the application process to be quick and easy so that they can move on to awarding and paying the grants as quickly as possible: Apply Now!
Early applications will be prioritised, but the grants will be released in phases to maximise the amount of causes that can be supported.
