Volant Charitable Trust - COVID-19 Response Fund

| Return|

Grants are available to UK charities that demonstrate a strong focus on alleviating social deprivation and helping vulnerable groups who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Who Can Apply

Registered charities, community interest companies, community organisations and social enterprises based and working in the UK (or abroad) may apply.

The organisation must demonstrate how it is directly involved with the alleviation of social deprivation and how it will support vulnerable groups affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be constituted (have a governing document).

  • Have a bank account in the name of the group with at least two unrelated signatories.

  • Have at least three unrelated members on their management committee.

  • Have committee meetings with a quorum of at least three unrelated members present.

  • Be at least two unrelated cheque signatories.

Eligible Expenditure

The activity must be specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic and can be for project and administrative costs, as the Trust does not usually fund capital expenditure. However, applications for medical equipment and the production or distribution of PPE may be considered.

How To Apply

Applications must be received by 31 December 2020.

Guidelines and an online request form for an application pack can be found on the Volant Charitable Trust website.

Contact the Trust for further information.
