With the support of its partner businesses M&S, Lidl, Aldi, Danone and Coca-Cola European Partners, Neighbourly is offering a series of micro-grants of up to £400, to support good causes that are helping communities affected by the new coronavirus outbreak.
Grants will be awarded to existing members of Neighbourly in UK and Ireland whose work will involve supporting members of the community suffering economically, socially or from ill health as a result of the outbreak. This may include, but not be limited to, elderly people, those on low incomes and people at risk of food insecurity.
Grants are unrestricted and can go towards food provision, emergency supplies, practical support, running costs, transport and other essentials.
Young Women’s Emergency Fund
The Young Women’s Trust has launched an emergency fund to help young women struggling financially as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The fund will provide relief payments of £150 to young women aged 18-30 struggling to afford essentials such as food, utilities and rent for themselves and their families.
The Young Women’s Trust has donated £85,000 of its own money to the fund and is seeking to raise a further £50,000 to help women in England and Wales.
