In 2020 we delivered the Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund, generating income to provide emergency response grants to charitable organisations providing direct action to those impacted by the virus. Please note, we are no longer accepting applications into our Coronavirus Response Fund.

As we move into a period where restrictions are being gradually lifted there is a sense that life will start to move back towards normality. However, for many, the impact of the pandemic will continue for some considerable time to come.

From 2021 onwards we will be building our Surrey Community Fund. The Surrey Community Fund allows us, using our local knowledge and expertise, to get the funds to where the need is greatest quickly and efficiently.

We are currently developing an exciting new grants programme to assist charities and voluntary groups supporting local residents and communities to cope and find a long-term and sustainable pathway to recovery following the pandemic.

Our Grant-Making Priorities

Health & Wellbeing


We know that the pandemic will have a long-term impact on physical and mental health, much of which is yet to be fully understood. We will support projects which advance people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing and safety.

Opportunities for education and training


School and university closures have left young people fearing for their education and future career opportunities. We will make grants to improve life skills, education, employability and enterprise.

Promoting Inclusion & overcoming disadvantage


The pandemic has caused an increase in job losses, homelessness, poverty and social exclusion. We will support initiatives which reduce disadvantage and isolation and increase access to local services for support.

Empowering communities

Through the pandemic the voluntary sector has demonstrated their vital role in supporting the community from providing befriending support to foodbanks. We will make grants to strengthen community cohesion and build social capacity.
Details coming soon of how you can apply for a grant from our Surrey Community Fund. Thank you for your patience at this time.

With your help, we can continue to get funding to where it is most needed, empower local communities to cope and recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, and Together We Can Give Surrey Hope.
