Faith in Community Scotland
Local faith groups and related community organisations in Scotland can apply for small grants of a few hundred pounds to help support families and individuals affected by the COVID-19 crisis. An initial fund of £100,000 has been made available by Faith in Community Scotland’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund. The focus of the fund is to support people most at risk of becoming disconnected during social distancing by meeting their needs, helping them to maintain safe relationships and allowing neighbours to support each other.
Applications can be made at any time. email@example.com
