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:
- 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.
