Funding to address a systemic societal issue related to the pandemic

The Postcode Recovery Fund has launched a fund to support charities to address the many issues affecting people as society recovers from the effects of the pandemic.

The Postcode Recovery Fund will offer a total award fund of £3,000,000 for charitable organisations to deliver projects in 2021-2023.

Charities can apply for between £500K and £1 million for a project that addresses a systemic societal issue related to the pandemic. The application form will be available to access until 5:30pm October 30th.

Areas of interest include:

Health and wellbeing: They are looking for projects that can demonstrate a clear plan to support the health and wellbeing of groups who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. e.g. refugees, elderly, BAME as well as those who have not been able to access diagnosis or support during lockdown, such as those with existing health conditions.

Social exclusion and isolation – The pandemic has highlighted the number of people who are isolated, and the negative impact this has on people's mental and physical health. The pandemic has also affected groups who don't have high visibility e.g. carers, disabled people, the elderly.

They have an Innovation Toolkit to help you develop original, impactful, and innovative projects.
