As a result of the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, particularly for those most vulnerable people within our communities, the Community Foundation for Lancashire has launched the Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund for community and voluntary organisations on the frontline.

Funding will be initially awarded under the following priorities:

  • Foodbanks
  • Food/care package delivery to vulnerable people self-isolating
  • Delivery of services and projects supporting the most vulnerable, such as older people e.g. a telephone support/friendship service or delivering online activities to help reduce isolation
  • Emotional and mental health wellbeing
  • Financial Inclusion, support to access benefits and debt advice

These priorities will be reviewed regularly and changed/additions made as fundraising and the outbreak develops.
