COVID-19: Funding Support

COVID Response Funding for your service

If you are/think you will experience problems in your service delivery/cash flow.  Please speak to any relevant funders asap and explain the situation.  All funders will be aware of the situation and maybe planning how they can support you through this period.   Do not worry about this alone, please either speak to your funder or contact us and we will see if we can help. 

If you are at risk of losing income then you may want to double-check your insurance,  If you have business continuity insurance then it may cover any loss due to the virus.  It isn't standard in insurance covers but it would be worth checking if you have had it.  As of 1700 on 5 Mar 2020, emergency legislation reclassified COVID-19 as a notifiable disease and so it should be covered if you have this on your insurance policy.
