Today the National Emergencies Trust has announced a further £5m of funding has been distributed to charities across the UK, helping those communities most impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. This brings total funds distributed in just over a month from the launch of the Trust’s appeal to £17.5m; money generously given by the public, major charitable trusts, and businesses.
So far, a total of £35m has been pledged to the Coronavirus Appeal with a further £20m in match funding promised from the Government. Further distributions will be made in the coming days, to continue to support the most vulnerable in society.
The money will be distributed through UK Community Foundations to 47 local community foundations across the country.
The appeal is responding to the needs of local communities across the UK and allocating money to community foundations based on local factors such as levels of deprivation and demographics in each region.
