The COVID-19 Funders are committing to standing with the sector, offering reassurance and a commitment to be as helpful as possible during the coming weeks and months so that civil society groups can focus on the vital work of supporting communities.

This initiative, established by London Funders, now has 230 funding organisations signed up to a series of commitments which include a more flexible approach to activities, dates and how you are spending your funding throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Find out more here:
