The Wellbeing Fund is focused on providing funding to organisations that can support people who are facing additional barriers or have increased requirements as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic. It can fund both immediate and emerging forms of support, from now up to the end of July 2020, reflecting that the context for people and communities may change over that time.
