The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) has launched a rapid response Fund to help smaller charitable organisations affected by the impact of Covid-19.

Organisations in the UK with charitable activities can apply for up to £10,000 to support day to day activities in the current health emergency or its Covid-19 emergency response activities.

Organisations with a charitable purpose and charitable activities, which had income of £1million or less in their last financial year, are eligible to apply. They can apply for unrestricted funding for core costs, staffing, volunteer costs, supplies and equipment, communications or other critical charitable areas.

CAF aims to make payments to selected organisations within 14 days of application.

High numbers of applicants are anticipated and unfortunately it is likely that CAF will not be able to offer a grant to all eligible applicants.
