Help for community groups, charities and other not for profit organisations. Grants may be made for charitable purposes to relieve hardship caused directly or indirectly by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
It is now essential that we provide sustainable funding through the COVID-19 MK Recovery Fund to support voluntary, community and cultural sector (VCCS) organisations to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Funding is available to support costs including loss of generated income, unplanned costs and adapting to new ways of providing support to vulnerable people in our community. Where possible we would expect organisations delivering similar projects to work in partnership with each other.
