We recommend you check our Applying for a Grant section first to see if you’re eligible and what our application process involves.

We have now distributed all of our Covid 19 emergency response funding to groups across Leeds and Bradford. We understand that the impact of the pandemic on the groups we support will be long-term and we are continuing to fundraise to support the sector to respond, alongside running the programmes we already had planned in for this year.

We are asking the partners and donors we work with from now on to ensure they include full cost recovery and additional core costs wherever possible, and we are continuing to offer as much flexibility and support as we can to ensure groups can respond to the need in communities as it changes.

We know many groups are considering how they may need to manage planned activity in relation to Coronavirus (Covid-19).
We have prepared guidance for organisations which can be found here. Please read this before contacting us about your activity.
