Black-led charities and social enterprises working in communities across the UK can apply for grant packages of £5,000 or £12,500.
This fund is for UK based organisations led by people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black. Priority will be given to organisations that have a place-based approach and also those led by people with lived experience of the problem they are trying to solve.
The grants are to help them:
- Get better informed about their options (moving to new methods of delivery) post-COVID-19.
- Develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies.
- Test the viability of specific propositions.
- Develop clear implementable action plans for such activity.
Common Call is specifically looking for organisations that are creating impact in underserved communities and providing services to people that have been adversely affected by the COVID crisis in terms of physical health, mental health and/or financial sustainability. The people you support should primarily be people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black.
