This response fund will provide emergency funding to grassroots treatment and recovery voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations delivering vital services at the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic response. The funding comes from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (which covers civil society in its brief) and the Department of Health and Social Care and will be distributed by Collective Voice.
It will be made exclusively available to smaller organisations with turnovers of less than £2m and will fund the additional support necessitated by the crisis – for service users or family members already supported, or for those not yet in treatment. This additional support could consist of, for instance, additional remote one-to-one or group support to those already getting help or ramping up outreach efforts to engage local people who are not yet supported.
