IMPORTANT MESSAGE - for existing grant recipients (COVID-19)

Updated: 20.03.20

If you're one of the 400+ recipients of a grant from us in the last year we will be contacting you by email in the next few working days.

The email you will receive will direct you to a simple online form to understand whether you want to postpone delivery for up to 3-months OR make changes to deliver on your project outcomes in a very different way, possibly remotely. It's really important that you use this form to update us on your status and keep our usual grants email address free for applications to our new Salford Crisis Fund (see below) and dealing with urgent issues.

We want to reassure you that Salford CVS is here to support your work in these exceptional times.  The COVID-19 outbreak is having a significant impact on society and we are aware that plans that you have made to support your communities over this year will most likely have changed.

Thank you for your patience
