NET announces plans for distribution of £12m to pandemic’s most impacted groups

The National Emergencies Trust has announced plans to distribute a further £12m from its Coronavirus Appeal, this time to a range of charity partnerships offering targeted support to some of the groups most at risk from the pandemic’s impact in the UK.

Since March, the NET’s Coronavirus Appeal has raised £87.25 million. It has distributed £64 million of this through Community Foundations UK-wide, including £250k for BAME charities and infrastructure. The funds have supported more than 8,000 grassroots groups in meeting urgent needs from food access to bereavement counselling.

It has now announced its first charity partners, each one of which will provide support to a disproportionately impacted group NET’s own gap analysis has highlighted as having potentially been underserved through the pandemic so far.
