#NevermoreNeeded! Ask your local MP to show their support!

In the face of coronavirus, charities are #NeverMoreNeeded – for the essential support they provide in crisis and beyond, and how they shape our society for the better.

The demands being placed on voluntary organisations right now is huge and rising, just when resources are being stretched to beyond breaking point and beyond, with organisations going to the wall on a daily basis.

We need a much greater level of support from the government – what’s on offer simply isn’t enough.

As we navigate the worst impacts of the coronavirus outbreak, people across the country are relying on charities and other voluntary organisations, for the essential support they provide and how they shape our society for the better.

Charities and other not-for-profit organisations make our communities stronger. In the toughest times, we provide support no-one else can.

Please ask your local MP to show their support, you can find a letter template and further information by visting https://nmn.org.uk/



Volant Charitable Trust – COVID-19 Response Fund

Application deadline: 31 December 2020.

Grants are available to UK charities that demonstrate a strong focus on alleviating social deprivation and helping vulnerable groups who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The activity must be specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic and can be for project and administrative costs, as the Trust does not usually fund capital expenditure. However, applications for medical equipment and the production or distribution of PPE may be considered.

Local Places for Nature Fund (Wales)

Application deadline: 14 October 2020

Grants are available to not-for-profit organisations in Wales for capital projects that acquire, restore and enhance nature in their local areas.

They are offering grants of £10,000–£50,000 (in 2020-21) for capital projects in Wales that will acquire, restore and enhance nature.

They are particularly looking for projects that can be seen “from your doorstep”. This means where people live, work, access public services, travel (including roadside verges and roundabouts) and spend their leisure time (including public open spaces).
