We are awarding small grants of up to £500 for groups that are supporting women, girls and LGBT+ people around the coronavirus situation. Groups must be small grassroots, charities or voluntary groups with a turnover of less than £10,000 per year.
We will consider awarding grants to groups that are offering tailored support to their communities through:
• Helping isolated people feel more connected;
• Supporting people to manage and improve their mental health and wellbeing – through contact, activities, or referral to specialist support;
• Provision of essential items that they cannot access through other sources
The deadline for applications for this round of grants is 5pm on Monday June 1st 2020.
This small grant funding is part of the Nottingham City Council Communities of Identity funding stream to Nottingham Women’s Centre and partner organisations.
