Common Call: Fund Two

What's on offer?

Black-led charities and social enterprises working in communities across the UK will be able to apply for a grant package of £5,000 or £12,500 to help them:

  • Get better informed about their options (moving to new methods of delivery) post-COVID19.
  • Develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies.
  • Test the viability of specific propositions.
  • Develop clear implementable action plans for such activity.​

Who can apply?

This fund is for UK based organisations led by people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black. We will be prioritising organisations that have a place-based approach. We are also prioritising organisations led by people with lived experience of the problem they are trying to solve and we are determined to ensure each of the organisations we fund has developed a plan for how the funding will lead to the sustainability of their organisation over the next year.

We are specifically looking for organisations that are creating impact in underserved communities and providing services to people that have been adversely affected by the COVID crisis in terms of physical health, mental health and/or financial sustainability. The people you support should primarily be people that identify as Black or Mixed with Black.

What is the application process like?

We developed a detailed Application Guidance to support you as you complete the questions. Please read it before you apply. The application guidance covers information such as the different stages, the due diligence process, the questions that will appear in the application form and the reasoning behind each question.
