National Lottery COVID-19 response funding

The National Lottery Community Fund is prioritising organisations supporting people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

This category includes, for instance organisations supporting:

older people

disabled people (including people with long-term health conditions)

lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer + (LGBTQ+) communities

Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.

It also includes organisations who provide advice and support to those pushed in crisis as a result of the pandemic and those organisations supporting people and their families with end-of-life care.

They advise that there will continue to be high demand for the funding and are heavily oversubscribed.

Funding available is between £300 and £10,000 to cover six months of expenditure.
