Funding for Summer Playschemes

The Hilden Charitable Funds Summer Play Scheme is now open for applications.  The Fund supports community groups and voluntary agencies with an income of less than £150,000 that run summer play schemes for children between the ages of 5 and 18 in disadvantaged communities.

Supported schemes should be locally based, last between two and six weeks and have strong volunteer support. Some priority will be given to projects which show that they are inclusive of children from refugee families and have BME involvement.

The closing date for applications is the 29th May 2020.

Coronavirus Resilience Fund

Heart of England Community Foundation understands the impact that the Coronavirus will have upon communities; personally, financially and in their capacity to be able to support their most vulnerable members.

With this in mind, the Foundation, and its Donors, have come together to provide a response to the growing emergency. We are keen to make sure that the organisations helping those most affected get the support that they need, so have launched a Coronavirus Resilience Fund.

We are opening the fund to constituted groups who are providing, but not limited to the following services:
•Food banks or social eating projects
•Delivery of emergency food/medicine parcels to those isolated due to the virus
•Street Pastors or those engaging in outreach activities
•Befriending services supporting the elderly or vulnerable through isolation
