To Support Essential Charity Services – Coronavirus Community Support Fund from National Lottery



The Government has recently announced that they will be providing further immediate funding to ensure the continuation of local charities and similar organisations.

The Government's new Coronavirus Community Support Fund will be open for applications at 10.00am on Friday 22nd May.

Being managed by The National Lottery (TNL) Community Fund, this new funding stream will make £200m in Government funding available. The funding will ideally be aimed at small to medium organisations in England, and has two key objectives:

  • Increasing community support to vulnerable people affected by the pandemic, through the work of civil society organisations.
  • Reducing temporary closures of essential charities and social enterprises, making sure services for vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 have the financial resources to operate, and so reduce the burden on public services.

Grants will allow organisations to meet service costs, where they are experiencing increased demand, as well as to relieve any short-term disruption to their income. Grants will also allow organisations to refocus services to address more immediate needs of the people they help in light of the pandemic.

TNL Community Fund says they will distribute this much-needed financial support to communities across England, whilst continuing to distribute money raised by National Lottery players at the same time.

They have also confirmed entry point and process for both streams will be the same, making it easier for charity and voluntary groups to apply for the funding.
