Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund

Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund



As a result of the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, particularly for those most vulnerable people within our communities, the Community Foundation for Lancashire has launched the Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund for community and voluntary organisations on the frontline helping our communities cope.



The Community Foundation for Lancashire – which is managing all donations received to the Fund, ensuring they reach the most vulnerable people affected by the coronavirus – is working in partnership with the National Emergencies Trust (NET) and Lancashire Resilience Forum.

NET has provided over £1m to the Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Fund, with an additional £220,000 coming from Local Authorities who form the Lancashire Resilience Forum with partners including police, fire and health.

The aim is to raise at least £2m to help where it is needed most.

The Lancashire COVID-19 Community Support Virgin Money Giving platform is an online giving option which has been established so the people of Lancashire  can also easily contribute, if they can, to the immense need of the most vulnerable in our community.
