The Sussex Crisis Fund has been set up to support community and voluntary sector organisations in Sussex who are leading efforts to support people most affected by the coronavirus outbreak. It has been primarily designed to help fund the urgent needs facing communities and to support for
organisations with funding needs to enable them to adapt and respond to the crisis.
The fund has been kick-started with generous donations from many of our donors and fund holders, including the Argus Appeal Fund and American Express. In addition, it includes funding from the National Emergencies Trust national appeal.
We have given over 200 grants totalling £830,000. Click here to see a list of grants given.
How to apply
Grants from the fund are made weekly. Emergency grants of up to £5,000 are available to support groups responding to the immediate crisis. At a later date, if funds allow, larger grants of up to £10,000 will be available to support organisations to counter any loss of income and fundraising which can be directly linked to the pandemic.
