The Trust has been working hard to support individuals, families and organisations within our area of benefit throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

We have provided over 40 individual and family grants  so far, to enable people to purchase essential items including food, white goods, children’s items, beds and more.

We have made a grant of £9,208 to Kilburn Good Neighbours at the Abbey Community Centre to support the work they are doing in the community to help isolated and vulnerable older people cope during the current crisis and afterwards.

We have provided Sainsbury’s shopping vouchers to three hostels in our area of benefit so that their vulnerable residents can manage to purchase basic food items for themselves and their families.

We have been liaising directly with a number of local organisations to work out what their priorities are at present and how we can best contribute. We are in the process of putting together an Emergency Fund to support their work.
