Important updates and NEW Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund

20th March 2020

We will be launching the Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund very soon to support local charities and voluntary organisations that are assisting some of Surrey’s most vulnerable people.

It is thanks to the generosity of local donors that we are able to launch this new local response Fund that will support projects responding directly to the coronavirus outbreak. We are currently still seeking further support from our network of generous donors and supporters!

We aim for the Surrey Coronavirus Response Fund to be open for applications next week, but in the meantime please visit the Fund’s webpage for the latest information and we encourage you to check back regularly.

For those of you that haven’t already signed up to our grants e-bulletin, you can do so here to receive direct updates about the Fund that you might find useful!

Updates for Existing Applicants

For grant applicants who are currently awaiting a decision on a current application, please bear with us as we are working hard to expedite those decisions and will give you news as soon as we possibly can.

Please note, if you feel that you cannot deliver the project you originally applied for due to current circumstances and wish to withdraw or update your application, you can contact our grants team at and they will respond as quickly as they are able.

Thank you and we greatly appreciate your patience.


Surrey County Council and Volunteer Centre’s across the county are coordinating volunteers and ensuring that those who need help can receive it as quickly as possible. Please see this page for information about how you can volunteer to help an individual or group in need.
