Advice and support on Coronavirus (Covid-19) 

Communities Fund

We launched a Communities Fund to help groups and volunteers carry on supporting vulnerable people across the county during COVID-19.

The deadline for applications to the Communities Fund was Friday 17 April 2020 at 12pm. We are no longer accepting applications.

So far more than 210 community and voluntary groups have applied for a share of £1.5m available through the Communities Fund.

If you require funding to specifically assist you through this current crisis please visit the Leicestershire Communities Fund page where there is a list of other funding currently available.
