Worcestershire Community Foundation distributes £1m to local causes during Covid pandemic

In 20/21, Worcestershire Community Foundation worked closely with the National Emergencies Trust (NET), DCMS and other funders to distribute more than £1m to 350+ community projects across the county to help stricken communities address the challenges that this crisis raised so abruptly. These funds helped schools, mental health causes, homelessness and poverty particularly supporting vulnerable groups such as the elderly, young children and those disadvantaged by disability, isolation or lack of income.

We are now thrilled to launch our Impact Report covering the work of this period, covering the challenges faced during Covid but also highlighting and celebrating the many community organisations who delivered the projects we are proud to have been able to fund. Please see the attached Impact Report for full details of how we have worked with Worcestershire’s vital community groups to deliver a huge range of programmes during this time. We aim to now move forward into a more prepared and resilient future, supported by strong local partnerships, including funders and donors who understand the crucial nature of our work, so that we can continue to make positive impacts on Worcestershire’s communities and make the county a better place to live and thrive. To do this, we will focus on developing our focus on EDI (equity, diversity and inclusion) basing our ambitions on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
