Never before in our lifetime have we faced a challenge like the Covid-19 pandemic but at WCF we are responding to the challenge.
We are running our local appeal - and you can support us by clicking the DONATE NOW button at the top of the page. We are also linking in with the National Emergencies Trust to draw money into Worcestershire. With these funds we have been able to help charities and community organisations who are fighting the impact - from foodbanks to homeless hostels, from toys and games for children stuck at home to transport for medicines and much, much else beside.

If you can help by donating some money please click DONATE NOW

Please note that we have temporarily paused our COVID- 19 Response Fund grant allocations.
There are some changes in our arrangements with big national funders, including Government, and until we have more clarity about their criteria and certainty on the value of their funding we have taken the decision to pause local grants.We are also looking at how we manage grant giving and will be potentially reviewing our funding criteria as we move into the “recovery phase” in order to be certain that any further money allocated hits the most appropriate targets for our Worcestershire communities. 
We will be resuming grant giving as soon as we reasonably can so please keep looking at this website for the latest information.
