CHANGED THE LIVES
OF EVERYBODY LIVING IN
WORCESTER BUT NONE MORE
THAN OUR BAME COMMUNITIES
We have one simple task - to help BAME community groups get access to help and reach funding via the Worcester Community Foundation.
Never before have we faced a challenge like the Covid-19 and we are here to help your community respond to the challenge.
As part of the National Emergencies Trust we have funds to help charities and community organisations in Worcestershire who are fighting the impact. From foodbanks to homeless hostels, from toys and games for children to transport for medicines and much more besides.
WHAT IS THE WORCESTERSHIRE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION?
We are an independent charity, part of a national network of 46 Community Foundations, one of the fastest growing philanthropic movements in the UK.
Since 2003 Worcestershire Community Foundation have worked to link donor funds - from individuals, families, trusts, companies and government - to Worcestershire's diverse network of local groups. We support local projects, designed by local people to address issues that directly affect them. We know that community initiatives are more likely to work and change lives.
As well as our own funds, we have links to over 50 other organisations that may be able to support you in your community response to Covid-19.
Anyone involved in a charity or community organisation needs to get in touch with us now on 07932 980397 and we'll do everything we can to help.
WHO CAN APPLY FOR HELP?
Possible funding is available for charitable organisations and voluntary community groups with charitable aims, based and operating in Worcestershire.

* Elderly (aged 65 or over)
* Vulnerable or disadvantaged people

You do not have to be a registered charity, just as long as the work you do has charitable aims.
