The £1 million Coronavirus Response Fund is being provided in response to the ongoing coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.
Social & Community Capital (S&CC), an independent charity launched by NatWest in 1999 to support social enterprises and community businesses, is providing and administering the funding.
The funding is intended for organisations across the UK that employ people from vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. This funding aims to bridge the income gap so that organisations survive the crisis and continue to have a positive impact in their communities.
Applications will be accepted from noon on 22 June until noon on 29 June 2020. Applications may be open longer depending on how many applications are received.
