Emergency fund

Ealing Council has created a £1.5m COVID-19 Emergency Fund to aid essential community services across the borough. This includes community service providers, voluntary sector providers and organisations who provide food assistance. 

Community service providers

Emergency funding is available for community service providers carrying out vital services to the elderly, vulnerable and young. This includes transport providers such as Ealing Community Transport. Details of how to access the community service will be made available when they are confirmed. 

Voluntary sector organisations

Funding is available for voluntary sector organisations which are working to address the challenges caused by COVID-19 and not covered by the above groups. Ealing CVS will be approaching their members with details of the scheme. Details to follow.

Food assistance

Grant funding is available for voluntary and charity organisations delivering food provision to people vulnerable to COVID-19. Organisations eligible for funding will be contacted directly. Residents requiring food assistance can contact Ealing Together for support.

Additonal information

Ealing Council, along with other funders, has signed up to the London Funders statement on COVID19. This recognises the challenging situation that many of our local community groups are in at this time and pledges our support.

Local groups can also find useful COVID-19 updates on the Ealing CVS website.
