Helping Charities deal with Emerging Issues - Coronavirus Emergency Fund from KCF06-Apr-2020
Local organisation Kent Community Foundation have recently launched emergency funding to help local community and support groups, charities and similar organisations continue their efforts in light of the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Coronavirus outbreak presents clear and present concerns to the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) across Kent & Medway, making it harder for them to support vulnerable people at a time when the needs of these vulnerable people can increase as this pandemic develops.
The Kent Community Foundation (KCF) recognises this, as well as and the financial effects of the pandemic on the sector, and have launched their Coronavirus Emergency Fund designed to alleviate any challenges, reduce the impact or difficulties which may be experienced by charities, allowing them to carry on their vital work across Kent & Medway.
KCF are especially interested in hearing from applicants or organisations working with other older people, families on low incomes, those affected by food
poverty, or children & young people adversely impacted by Coronavirus.
At the time of writing, additional funding had been sourced from National Emergencies Trust (NET), who are keen to support projects on the Coronavirus front-line; and KCF give the reassurance that similar to their normal scheme, this funding can be seen as a Continuous Rolling Programme, so applications can be accepted at any time.
