CAF Resilience Fund
The Charites Aid Foundation (CAF) has launched a fund to help charitable organisations in England that support the people hardest hit by Covid-19.
It's open to registered and unregistered charitable organisations, including CICs and social enterprises, with an income of between £50,000 and £10m, established on or before 31 August 2019.
The fund aims to help a number of different causes and communities that focus on unrepresented and vulnerable communities in England. Their flexible grants (between £10,000 and £100,000) can be used to support the activities that are essential for delivering relevant services, including salaries, running costs/overheads, equipment etc.
The grant can support costs between 1 October 2020 and 31 March 2021.
It is expected that there will be a high level of demand and thus priority will be given to:
- Charities/organisations whose activities have been severely reduced or are at risk of being severely reduced to the detriment of vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.
- Organisations having to deliver core services in fundamentally different or unusual ways in order to respond to the crisis
- Organisations that are deeply embedded with communities and have established networks to deliver their charitable activities.
Applications will be accepted from 20 October to 10 November 2020 (12 noon).
