Connect Hackney

Grants programme now launched to help protect your community from Covdi-19

• Are you working in communities who are disproportionately affected by Covid-19?
• Or working where there are barriers to receiving public health information?
Covid Information Grants are for voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations in City and Hackney to give out accurate information to the local community about keeping safe during the pandemic.

This includes informing people about how to get a test at home or at a testing centre, and what to do if you have a positive test.

Grants are prioritised for organisations working with communities disproportionately affected by Covid-19, or where there are barriers to understanding public health information.

Grant holders will have regular meetings with the local Public Health team and will have staff or volunteers trained to be local experts.

Grants will be offered at two levels –

  • Messenger Grants of up to £10k and
  • Contact Point Grants of up to £20k, with Contact Point Grants asking organisations to act as a contact point within their community, as well as carrying out the information giving and feeding back.

Deadline: 9 am on Monday 19th October.
