The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown has hit communities across South Yorkshire hard. We know that it has affected Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities particularly badly.
We also know that community groups across South Yorkshire are doing brilliant work to save lives and relieve hardship.
South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation is making grants of up to £5,000 to community groups and not-for-profit organisations, to support the following:
Delivering services to vulnerable people (e.g. food banks, befriending schemes and other crucial community services)
Providing information, advice, counselling and other support to help people cope with isolation and emotional stress
Supporting essential running costs to enable community organisations to deliver vital services
Enabling community organisations to deliver differently (e.g. equipment for remote working or telephone helplines rather than face-to-face support)
We are particularly keen to fund applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community groups.
This webinar will explain what the fund is, and how to apply. The speakers will be Shahida Siddique, Director of Faith Star atnd a trusteee of the Community Foundation, and Sam Caldwell, the Foundation's Head of Grants.
You need to book a place - we will send out the Zoom link the day before
