Voice4Change England has launched the second round of its Covid-19 Partnership Fund to help small BAME-led charities, voluntary and community groups, and social enterprises tackle the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in England.
The fund will provide organisations with grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 to deal with emerging issues in the community, as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus, the need for self-isolation, and potential for further exacerbation of loneliness and isolation.
The programme is designed for smaller BAME community groups with an annual income of less than £200,00 and can include groups catering for white minority communities other than White British e.g. Polish, Lithuanian etc., as well as communities that are Black, Asian, Chinese, African and Middle Eastern etc.
Groups can apply for help with current costs to deliver Covid-19 services, including mental health and wellbeing services and sports activities.
