#ShiftThePower Coronavirus Response Fund
#ShiftThePower Coronavirus Response Fund provides grants up to £10,000 to charities and not-for-profit groups with a turnover of less than £250,000. The fund aims to help community- based organisations in Scotland respond to the impact of Coronavirus on vulnerable individuals, families, and communities. It can support organisations to make adaptions to their working environments and practices so that they can deliver services that people need. The organisation’s primary focus of work should fit into one of the four strategic themes.
- Children Survive & Thrive: Early years development for children facing disadvantage.
- Gender Justice: Contributing to gender equality by reducing violence and discrimination based on gender and sexuality.
- A Safe Place to Be: Supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes to live safely.
- Mental Health Matters: Improving mental health provision and tackling stigma around mental health.
The Fund operates on a rolling basis and will close when all funds are awarded. The fund is delivered by Corra Foundation working as an intermediary partner with Comic Relief in Scotland and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
The Fund closes on 23 October 2020.
