The Robin Hood Fund has announced the launch of a small grants scheme that will allow charities and voluntary/community groups in Nottingham to apply for up to £1,000 to help them deliver their work during the COVID-19 crisis.
Nottingham City Council has worked with organisers of the fund to earmark an initial £20,000 to organisations requesting support. Organisations working on the front-line to support the city's most vulnerable during the pandemic are invited to apply.
Priority will be given to projects that help and support vulnerable people in Nottingham that fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Access to food, such as providing help with food shopping, food delivery
- Access to medicine, helping with collecting and delivering prescriptions and medicines from supermarkets and pharmacies
- Social wellbeing, such as befriending/buddy schemes
- Emotional/mental health wellbeing
- Physical wellbeing, such as helping people stay mobile and active
- Transport, such as help with essential travel
Other projects and services not listed above that support vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 will be considered for funding.
The Robin Hood Fund hopes to extend the scheme beyond the initial £20,000 in the coming weeks, to allow organisations to apply for additional support.
