£1m VCSE Covid Recovery Fund 18 January 2021

Minister reopens Voluntary, Community and Social Economy Sector Covid Recovery Fund

 

Funding

Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey has today announced the opening of a second phase, worth £1m of the Voluntary, Community and Social Economy Sector (VCSE) Covid Recovery Fund.

The aim of the Recovery Fund is to help to safely deliver essential services during the Covid–19 crisis and to assist with the safe reopening of the VCSE sector to maintain service delivery.

The Minister explained: 

“I want to provide the sector with whatever support I can to ensure it can deliver services to the most vulnerable in our communities.  This phase of the £1m Fund, is to ensure that VCSE organisations have the sufficient PPE required to continue service delivery. Groups can apply for awards up to £5,000 for the purchase of PPE and I would urge VCSE organisations to apply.”

Organisations who were previously successful in applying to this element of the fund can reapply to receive up to £5,000 (e.g. if an organisation was awarded £2,000 from the 1st phase of applications, they can apply for a further £3,000).
