Nottingham COVID-19 Self-Isolation Support Grant now open

Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service (NCVS) is working in partnership with Nottingham City Council to ensure Nottingham residents are supported to self-isolate in the event of a positive test for COVID-19.

It is recognised that when the self-isolation rules change from being mandatory to recommended people may find it difficult to receive support. Also, people that are more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19 may feel the need to voluntarily self-isolate. This fund is to ensure that all people who self-isolate receive the support they need to be able to do so.

It is also recognised that the voluntary sector has played and will continue to play a vital role in supporting communities and vulnerable people directly affected by the pandemic. This fund is to help you to continue to carry out this vital work.

The fund is open for applications from Thursday 24 February until 12 noon on Monday 14 March 2022.

We know this is a tight deadline but we have made every effort to make the application process as simple as possible, so please do apply if you feel you meet the criteria.

This fund is open to those organisations and community groups who support Nottingham City communities by providing:

  • Practical, social, and emotional support for those who need it
  • Support for people on low incomes who are unable to work from home and will lose income through self-isolating.
  • Communications to improve awareness of when people need to self-isolate, its importance in stopping the spread of the virus and the support available.

Organisations and partnerships can apply for up to £15,000 to deliver activities. Applications for more than £15,000 can be considered if exceptional circumstances can be demonstrated.
