| Return|

The National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) has opened a £45m programme to fund charities and social enterprises working with people “disproportionately impacted” by the coronavirus.

The money will be distributed through five partnerships, which includes £5m for migrant and refugee charities made available by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, and another £5m for homelessness charities via Homeless Link.

A further £5m will be distributed to charities giving welfare advice, while nearly £20m will go to social enterprises. A consortium headed by Power to Change has received £10m to work with community businesses and other local organisations in England.
