Funding for groups supporting vulnerable people & communities impacted by COVID-19
As part of Barclays’ COVID-19 Community Aid Package, they launched the 100×100 UK COVID-19 Community Relief Fund – or 100×100 Programme – to get support right into the heart of local communities across the UK to reach those that need it.
They invited UK charities to apply for one of 100 donations of £100,000 each, to help them deliver impactful on-the-ground support. Inspired by the scale of the response, they extended the programme to help more charities. So far they’ve reached more than 180 organisations.
Apply to receive a £100,000 donation
As the impact of the pandemic continues to be felt, Barclays will be making a further 50 donations of £100,000 each to UK charities working to support vulnerable people and communities impacted by COVID-19, and to alleviate the associated social and economic hardship caused by the crisis.
UK charities, with an annual income of at least £1m, are invited to apply to receive a donation of £100,000 to meet the needs of our communities as they emerge from the pandemic, including:
- help for people experiencing physical and mental health issues;
- financial assistance for people facing financial hardship;
- support for ethnically diverse communities disproportionately impacted by the crisis; and
- enhancing digital accessibility.
Applications are now open and will close at 6pm (UK time) on Friday 6 August, 2021.
