Groundwork grants and Covid-19

Groundwork recognises that the Covid-19 pandemic is an exceptional event that will affect our grantees in the voluntary and community sector.  We are therefore aware that grantees may need to be supported differently during these unprecedented times.

To that effect, we can confirm that from today, we’re introducing significant flexibility to reflect these current circumstances in how we support organisations that we are funding who are affected by the outbreak.

We are committed to listening to the concerns of grantees and will follow these guiding principles to support their work.  We encourage grantees to contact us so we can respond to their needs.

  1. We understand that grantees may need to adapt activities and their outcomes may change or not be achieved in the timeframes originally set.
  2. We understand that project completion dates may change.
  3. We understand that organisations may need to use their grant differently e.g. buying different types of equipment or delivering virtual sessions instead of face to face.

Please check the FAQ pages for our various grants if you’d like further information.  We will be adding more advice in the coming days.

Please do contact us if you require any changes to your grant.
