Coronavirus and your wellbeing
Information is to help you cope if:
- you’re feeling anxious or worried about coronavirus
- you’re staying at home and avoiding public places, following Government advice that we should stay at home as much as possible
- you are self-isolating because you, or someone you live with, has symptoms of coronavirus. Self-isolating means that you stay at home and keep away from others.
FUNDING: Area Partnership Grants
We will continue to grant Area Partnership Budget applications using delegated authority of GCC Emergency Committee. We want to support community organisations at this time, particularly where funding is sought to help vulnerable citizens.
FUNDINGThe Third Sector Resilience Fund
The TSRF is a £20m emergency fund for charities, community groups, social enterprises and voluntary organisations working in Scotland. The fund will support organisations that already deliver services and products but find themselves in financial difficulties directly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The primary intention of the fund is to help third sector organisations to stabilise and manage cash flows over this difficult period.
