New emergency support fund announced to help community and voluntary organisations

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has pledged £1 million to a new emergency support fund to help London’s community and voluntary organisations affected by the impact of the coronavirus.

This emergency scheme – which will be coordinated by London Funders – will be available to organisations facing immediate financial pressures and uncertainty due to the coronavirus. These include increasing demands for services, higher staff absences, fewer volunteers and lower donations.

The Mayor of London is making a plea to other funding organisations (including central government) to contribute to this fund. Click here for a press release from the Mayor’s team.

An update will go out next week in a special edition of their newsletter – sign up here to subscribe to this and stay informed.
