In response to the current crisis, the Co-operative have made some changes to their Community Dividend Fund to provide immediate financial support for local good causes, community groups and charities who are responding to some of the most worrying impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Many charities and organisations are suffering financial hardship due to the pandemic – incomes have fallen, demand has risen.
In particular, they know that providing the basics including food has become a challenge for many people. Isolation and lack of access to normal services means that mental health and wellbeing is a growing concern.
The Community Dividend Fund particularly welcome applications from organisations that are meeting needs in these areas.
