Charities call on government to create an Emergency Support Fund

The #NeverMoreNeeded campaign has issued an open letter to the Prime Minister, calling for the creation of an Emergency Support Fund for communities and causes.

The letter comes as charities respond to growing need for their services while wrestling with an estimated £10bn funding gap caused by the pandemic. Many organisations are already spending their reserves, making redundancies and having to scale back or even close services.

The Prospectory - Idea Fund

Applications may be made at any time while funding remains available.

Grants are available to individuals or small groups or organisations based in the United Kingdom who have a novel technical idea which they want to try out.

Maximum Value:

£ 5,000

Minimum Value:

£ 250

The fund offers grants ranging from £250 to £5,000. Once the fund's allocation has been used, it will be closed for applications until the funding pot has refilled.

It is not the fund's normal practice to provide part funding to larger projects.
