The new CAF Resilience Fund

The CAF Resilience Fund exists to help charitable organisations in England that support the people hardest hit by Covid-19.

 Through hundreds of unrestricted grants, this fund will support those working with vulnerable and disadvantaged groups such as those living in deprived areas, those supporting Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and people with disabilities.

 Both registered and unregistered charitable organisations, including community interest companies and social enterprises, can apply for the CAF Resilience Fund.

This fund will initially distribute £20 million made up of grants ranging from £10,000 to £100,000 to deliver rapid relief from the impact of Covid-19.
