PH Holt Foundation has opened a new £250,000 Resilience Fund specifically for Merseyside charities aiming to address the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic upon vulnerable or disadvantaged communities across the region.
The Resilience Fund seeks to support activities that enable people to access opportunities which improve their well-being and connectivity. Charities should already be working with people in one of the following priority areas :
- Children and young people
- Mental health support
- Victims of domestic abuse
This is a one-off grant fund available to small and medium sized charities with a track record of delivering successful and effective programmes reaching those most in need. Existing or previous grant holders, and new applicants can apply for grants starting at £5,000 and which in exceptional cases can rise above £10,000 to a maximum grant of £20,000. Applications can be made at any time with decisions expected within 4-6 weeks from submission.
The Resilience Fund is time limited and will close once the allocation of funds is exhausted.
