Staffordshire Funding Fair

Staffordshire County Council, SCVYS and Crowdfund Staffordshire are excited to host a county wide funding fair

This event is being organised collectively by Staffordshire County Council and SCVYS. We are excited to work together with Crowfund Staffordshire to mark their relaunch as they seek to work with even more voluntary and community groups in Staffordshire.

The day will work as one session with presentations from funders from 1:30pm.

COVID-19: CLOTHWORKERS' EMERGENCY CAPITAL PROGRAMME

The Clothworkers’ Emergency Capital Programme (CECP) will award small capital grants of up to £5,000 for essential capital items to adapt or increase services in response to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Priority will be given to organisations supporting vulnerable and ‘at risk’ groups within our programme areas during this period.

Key features of the fund:

Severn Trent creates £1m emergency fund to help communities and charity groups affected by coronavirus outbreak

With the coronavirus crisis leaving many communities and customers struggling badly, Severn Trent has moved quickly to release £1m of emergency funds to offer support where it’s needed the most.

Liv Garfield, Severn Trent CEO, said: “Even though we’re out there on the frontline keeping water flowing and taking waste water away, we knew we could do more for our communities by going above and beyond the support we already offer. 

Persimmon Community Champions Fund

Persimmon Community Champions re giving away up to £2000 each every month – that’s a whopping £64,000 a month available to fund local community initiatives.

From 1st April for the foreseeable future, they want to focus on organisations that support the over-70s - a vulnerable group in our society that we feel need our support at this time.

It’s really simple to apply for a donation. All you need to do is complete the online form, telling them why your group or charity, which works with or supports the over-70s, deserves their donation.

VocTech Now Fund

With coronavirus (COVID -19) rapidly transforming the way millions of people across the UK work and learn, the Ufi VocTech Trust has announced a new funding call for 2020. VocTech Now has been prompted by the unprecedented situation vocational trainers and their learners are experiencing.

Funding is available for projects that will last no longer than three months. Ufi wishes to hear from vocational learning providers who have an idea for how they can use technology to deliver fast results for its learners online, but who need support to get their idea up and running.

£300M National Lottery Funding to help Communities Tackle Covid-19 Crisis

The funds will be used to support the most vulnerable in communities across the UK during these difficult times. From next week, hundreds of millions of pounds will start benefiting those projects that are at the forefront of the Coronavirus crisis - from supporting food banks, to causes that combat loneliness and isolation, help for the elderly and projects that support health in the community.
