Grants of between £5,000 and £12,500 are available to UK based Black-led organisations working in communities that have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.
The funding is being made available by Do it Now Now’s Common Call grants programme and is specifically aimed at supporting charities and social enterprises led by people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black. Priority will be given to organisations led by people with lived experience and that are creating impact in underserved communities and providing services to people that have been adversely affected by the COVID crisis in terms of physical health, mental health and/or financial sustainability.
A total of £300,000 is available and funding can be used to help:
- organisations move to new delivery methods;
- develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies;
- test the viability of specific propositions;
- and develop clear implementable action plans.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 25th June 2021.
