Loneliness Covid-19 Grant Fund

As part of the Government's plan to tackle loneliness during the coronavirus lockdown, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has launched a £5 million to fund national organisations working to tackle loneliness and build social connections.

The objectives of this fund are to:

  • provide effective, targeted relief for those most at risk of loneliness as a result of Covid-19.
  • contribute to the evidence base on Covid-19 and loneliness.

This fund will make grants of between £500,000 and £1,000,000.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on 29 May 2020.
