Community Contribution Fund - COVID-19 grant scheme

Are you a voluntary or community organisation providing services to help people in Westminster impacted by coronavirus outbreak? Then you might be eligible for financial support from The City of Westminster Charitable Trust’s coronavirus grant scheme, through the Community Contribution Fund.

Projects must support one of the Trust’s three priorities, which are:

  • supporting people who find themselves sleeping rough on Westminster's streets
  • helping young people achieve their full potential
  • helping lonely people feel less isolated

Funding is intended to be flexible in helping organisations support people through the crisis. Activities could include volunteer recruitment, transport for those in need, befriending services, community hubs, equipment or other measures that make community support more accessible or allow it to be delivered safely.

Funds are open now. Download the application form to apply.
