LCR Cares COVID-19 Community Support Fund

LCR CARES COVID-19 COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND

Deadline: The fund will be rolling and decisions made on a weekly basis.

Details: As a result of the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, particularly for those most vulnerable people within our communities, Metro Mayor in partnership with the Community Foundation for Merseyside has launched the LCR Cares COVID-19 Community Support Fund to support community and voluntary organisations on the frontline. Phase 1- Funding will be initially awarded under the following priorities:

•    Foodbanks
•    Food/care package delivery to vulnerable people self-isolating
•    Delivery of services and projects supporting the most vulnerable, such as older people e.g. a telephone support/friendship service or delivering online activities to help reduce isolation
•    Emotional and mental health wellbeing
•    Financial Inclusion, support to access benefits and debt advice

These priorities will be reviewed regularly and changed/additions made as fundraising and the outbreak develops. Who can apply? Voluntary, community and faith organisations, registered charities, social businesses, churches, PTAs and parish/town councils. We also welcome applications from newly established groups though please note the requirements below on documentation required. How much is available? Grants of up to £5,000 will be available initially. This may change in further phases of the fund. If you receive a grant, we can accept subsequent applications to further phases of the fund or when additional funding is received though please note we will have to take into account previous grants to ensure we are able to support as many community organisations as possible.
