Through the Coronavirus Community Fund we’ve been able to support an incredible outpouring of generosity and community spirit. As we’ve done that, we’ve been learning and adapting, ensuring the Coronavirus Community Fund is focused on helping the most vulnerable at this time. Groups working with people of all ages and at increased risk as a result of the virus, particularly in relation to poor mental health and wellbeing and vulnerable isolated people, particularly in rural areas. You can see the groups we have funded across Northern Ireland in the map below, click here to view in more detail.
