Reaching Communities England

Reaching Communities England

This programme offers a larger amount of funding (over £10,000) for projects that last up to five years. We’re looking for projects that work with their community – whether that’s a community living in the same area, or people with similar interests or life experiences.

COVID-19 Response: All the funding decisions we make for the next six months will prioritise addressing the current crisis.

Across our England funding programmes, we will prioritise applications that are COVID-19 related.

This means we will prioritise applications from:

  • Organisations supporting people who are at high risk from COVID-19
  • Organisations supporting communities most likely to face increased demand and challenges as a direct result of measures to prevent the result of COVID-19
  • Organisations with high potential to support communities with the direct and indirect impact of COVID-19

We will support organisations who fit these priorities with funding for activities specifically geared to supporting communities through this crisis.

We will also consider how we can support such organisations to respond to any acute financial difficulties they might face as a result of the crisis.

We will get in touch with you to discuss the implications of any applications you have already submitted to us.

If you would like to put in an application that is not related to COVID-19, you are still welcome to do so. However, please be aware that there is likely to be greater competition for our funding and that we might not be able to get back to you for a period of up to 6 months.
