The National Emergencies Trust today launched an appeal to raise funds to help local charities to support those individuals suffering hardship as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The National Emergencies Trust will distribute money raised through a number of charitable organisations including local community foundations, to ensure it reaches those who need it most.
Community foundations are well placed to support local charities to overcome challenges presented by this ongoing emergency. Each of the 46 community foundations in our network has an in-depth understanding of their local area, what the priority needs are and how best to address these issues, so they can ensure the funding goes where it is most needed and can make the most impact.
Details of the NET fund and criteria for groups to apply will be available on the website of your local community foundation very soon.
