CAF Coronavirus Emergency Fund (currently paused)

Who can apply?

Organisations with a charitable purpose and charitable activities, which had income of £1million or less in their last financial year.

This includes:

  • UK registered charities (registered with Charity Commission, Scottish Charity Regulator or Charity Commission for Northern Ireland, or as shown in the Charities Act 2010)
  • Organisations registered with Companies House or the Public Mutuals Register, as a charitable or not-for-profit entity, eg Community Interest Companies, Companies Limited by Guarantee and others
  • Unregistered entities and social enterprises.

How much can you apply for?

Organisations in the UK with charitable activities can apply for up to £10,000 to support day to day activities in the current health emergency or your Covid-19 emergency response activities.

What can you apply for?

You can apply for unrestricted funding for core costs, staffing, volunteer costs, supplies and equipment, communications or other critical charitable areas. You must be able to describe how an emergency grant will improve the situation for your organisation and community.

Timescales

This is a rapid response fund.

If your organisation is not a registered charity, it is possible that we will need to make further checks on your organisation, and if so, it may take slightly longer.

The aim is for grants to be paid to selected organisations within 14 days of application.
