SYCF: Covid-19 Response Fund

7th April 2020

SYCF and community foundations across the country are working with the National Emergencies Trust (NET) to make sure resources reach the community groups and charities

which are already doing incredible work to save lives and relieve hardship in the present situation. If you’d like to contribute to this fund, please visit the National Emergencies Trust website >

All donations raised through the Community Foundation’s own COVID-19 Response Fund along with funds made available for distribution in South Yorkshire through the National Emergencies Trust’s appeal will support community and voluntary organisations that are assisting some of South Yorkshire’s most vulnerable people.

The fund’s aims and priorities are to support community organisations that are working to ease the immediate difficulties communities are facing and to support their recovery in the coming weeks and months. This includes charities, voluntary groups and social enterprises.

Priority will be given to voluntary organisations providing support to the most vulnerable and isolated including:

Older people
People with disabilities
People with mental health needs
People on low income
Families with young children
