Aims of Fund

This is the third phase of the fund and is particularly aimed at helping people experiencing greater health inequalities as a result of Covid-19 and those facing acute financial difficulties as a direct result of the pandemic.

Who can apply

Groups in Sussex. Alongside helping to address extreme poverty and disadvantage Sussex Community Foundation would like to particularly encourage applications which support people disproportionately impact by Covid-19 such as women, Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and children and young people.

If your group has already received funding from the Sussex Crisis Fund since April 2021, you cannot reapply.

How much and what can you apply for

Grants of up to £10,000 for delivery over a twelve-month period under the following themes:
• Mental health and well-being support
• Advice and support services
• Digital inclusion
• Reconnecting people and communities
• Costs associated with providing food and other vital support

At this stage, the funders are especially keen to see applications to support digital inclusion work, particularly in East and West Sussex. Further information is on the Sussex Community Foundation website.
