Active Inclusion fund for COVID-19
A new round of Active Inclusion funding is being launched to help organisations who have had to adapt the way that they carry out their day to day activities in the struggle against coronavirus. A short, simplified round of AIF funding will be run, to support six-month projects social inclusion and improved employability prospects, with a total cost of no more than £25,000 (at 80%). The funding will assist with measures taken to alleviate the crisis and support activities to build recovery after the emergency period ends. For example some projects may focus on activities to help with Covid-19 related services, using participants to help deliver this, eg helping people who are shielded to keep in touch with their families, and therefore adding to their skills and employability. Others may focus on services to directly support their participant groups, e.g by providing telephone and digital support, online activities, etc.
Applications will be via MAP, WCVA’s multi-application portal, and we aim to have projects up and running within 4-6 weeks of submission.
