Grants are available for specialist social welfare legal advice organisations to cope with the immediate impact of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic and lay the foundations for longer-term renewal.
The funding is intended for specialist social welfare legal advice agencies, supporting the key role they play in providing essential support to people and communities during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
The Fund anticipates to be making grants in the range of £25,000 to £75,000 but this range is indicative and organisations can apply for less than £25,000 if that is what is needed. The Fund may also be able to make grants larger than £75,000 in certain circumstances.
Wave one is open for application on a rolling weekly basis. There is no fixed deadline.
