Information for existing grantees

From an increased demand for services to a massive re-organisation of how work is undertaken, we understand that adapting to the challenges presented by Covid-19 as we enter the 'new normal' remains important for the charity sector.

A grant is more than just a donation. It carries a commitment to delivering particular work and reporting on the impact of that work. Due to the impact of Covid-19, charitable organisations in receipt of grants may have need to adapt their project time frames, or may not be able to report on those activities in a timely fashion, and are  keen to work with their funders to achieve the best possible ends. We also recognise that many charities may have suspended activities until further notice.

We have been in touch with all current grantees regarding particular adjustments for their grant, however if you are concerned about your ability to meet the requirements of an existing grant as a result of the impact of Covid-19 on your organisation, please contact the grant making team.
