£10,000 of Catalyst’s COVID-19 support fund for small third sector organisation has yet to be distributed, and during PRIDE month, we would like to encourage LBGT+ charities to apply for funding.
Launched back at the start of April, the fund has helped a number of small organisations across London and the counties. It was set up as a recognition of the additional challenges faced by charities and community organisations when delivering services.
The fund is open to organisations working in Catalyst neighbourhoods that are supporting those with low and insecure incomes, older people and vulnerable adults, as well as those with mental ill health.
Groups can apply for up to £2,000 and will cover costs such as:
- Staffing costs to cover the project
- Small capital/equipment costs
- Volunteer costs
- Contribution to general running costs
Organisations interested in applying are encouraged to email Wendy Sweeney, Specialist Team Manager, to organise an informal discussion about your project.
