Arnold Clark Community Fund (UK)
Charities and local community groups across the UK who are in need of financial assistance due to the coronavirus pandemic can apply for funding of up to £1,000 to continue their work during the crisis. The Arnold Clark Community Fund will award 500 grants through a monthly draw to help charities and community groups continue their important work which may be at risk due to the pandemic. Only one application will be accepted per organisation and entries must be received by 11.59pm on the last day of each month to be considered for that month. Applications that are unsuccessful one month will be kept in the draw for the following month. The final deadline for applications is the 31st May 2021.
What is a community group?
A community group is an organisation that is registered with their local council and set up to benefit the community rather than make a profit, such as voluntary groups. They’re not registered charities, and as such, they don’t have a registered charity number.
