The £1 million Coronavirus Charity Help Fund has been set up by MoneySavingExpert’s Martin Lewis personal charity fund to help those affected by the coronavirus.
Small registered charities, or local arms of bigger charities can apply now for a grant of between £5,000 and £20,000 for specific coronavirus poverty relief projects in the UK.
Examples could include foodbanks, charities engaged in community aid, financial advice help and more. The hope is to get the money distributed within the next couple of weeks, and thus the focus is on supporting projects that are up and running, or are in the process of being set up.
Please note the funding is only for specific coronavirus projects.
