Please read the Essential Information before applying. 

The Community Foundation for Lancashire, working with local and national partners, is pleased to launch the Lancashire Red Rose Responding Fund. This follows on from our COVID -19 Community Support Fund which was launched in March 2020.

The overall aim of the fund is to support local charities, voluntary and community organisations that are helping vulnerable people impacted by the Covid-19 crisis- specifically relating to mental health.

The fund will prioritise projects which directly respond to acute need and are delivered by organisations based within their local community and able to provide appropriate provision for the people they support.

Funding for the Lancashire Red Rose Responding fund is currently being provided by:

The fund is available to support people’s mental health of all ages and backgrounds. Priorities include:


Additional Criteria

Who can apply?

We can accept applications from organisations who have previously received funding from our Covid-19 Community Support Fund as long as the original funding has been spent and monitoring provided.
