New ! Phoenix Fund

The new Phoenix Fund will also be part of a wider response to help address long standing inequalities present within both the sector and wider society. It is expected to be launched within weeks to provide emergency funding to support small and micro organisations in communities most affected by the pandemic, and more details on who and how to apply will be available at launch.

The partnership with Global Fund for Children came about following a meeting between black and ethnic minority civil society leaders and The National Lottery Community Fund, and is expected to inform The National Lottery Community Fund in developing its approach to equity and inclusion and to funding diverse groups.

The Phoenix Fund will be co-designed and developed by a core group of black and ethnic minority-led organisations from across the sector, and young people from the National Lottery Community Fund’s advisory group will also be involved.
