In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Berkeley Foundation has launched a new Resilience Fund to help strengthen the voluntary sector in Greater London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, West Sussex, Warwickshire and the City of Birmingham.
The fund will help to build resilience in organisations working to enable young people, aged 16-25, to overcome barriers to work and kick-start their careers. This could include the long-term unemployed, people with caring responsibilities or a lack of qualifications, homeless people, or disabled people.
Grants of up to £30,000 are available to registered charities and CICs over two years, along with a learning and evaluation programme. Around ten grants will be awarded each year.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 31st October 2021.
