During the current COVID-19 crisis the Archdiocese’s Development Team is still writing funding applications to benefit parishes.

The team is particularly looking to support parishes to apply to the Awards for All programme. 

Awards for All is a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund which awards up to £10,000 for small projects and items of equipment.

This is a very quick and easy process and, if successful, you will have the funding in place over the summer.

At the moment the National Lottery Community Fund are particularly keen to support:

1. Organisations or projects supporting people who are at high risk from COVID-19
2. Organisations supporting communities most likely to face increased demand and challenges as a direct result of COVID-19
3. Organisations or projects with high potential to support communities with the direct and indirect impact of COVID-19

Even if you already hold a grant from Awards for All, they are accepting a second Awards for All application if you need more funding for activity related to COVID-19 or to help with any issues your community is facing because of COVID-19 (even if this means you’d have two grants at once).
