Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support communities in need. Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency Groundwork have created a streamlined application process and payment process to make it easier to get funds to people in need quickly.
If your application is successful the fund will provide a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups. The programme is set up to support organisational need in this time of crisis rather than fund specific projects.
