Now well into the lockdown period, we have a better understanding of the impact that this crisis is having on you, our funded organisations, and the wider third sector. We know that it is more important than ever to support you as you negotiate the challenges of this new working environment and work to continue delivering services to people and communities, many of whom will be experiencing more severe physical, mental and financial challenges at a time of increased isolation.
Even though we are working from home, we are here to support you.
Scottish Government Covid-19 Wellbeing Fund
Impact Funding Partners is delighted to be supporting the Scottish Government COVID19 Wellbeing Fund, managed by SCVO. It was our pleasure to be able to offer pro-bono support with the assessment of the applications which were received in the first round of the fund. Over the last week, several of our staff volunteered to use their skills and experience to assist with the quick turnaround required, to get funding out to those organisations supporting at risk groups with new needs arising from the pandemic.
Round 2 is now closed. More information on the fund is available on the SCVO website.
We know that many third sector organisations will be anxious about funding due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Here we have set out 5 places where charities can access for additional funding or information to help support them through this pandemic.
We take a look at some of the great training and learning opportunities available to help increase your skills as well as learn new ways to operate your business during the lockdown.
In this blog we outline some of the support available for third sector organisations. Support ranges from advice to businesses, users and key workers.
