Response Fund

Please note, we are no longer accepting applications into our Coronavirus Response Fund.

We have 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.

We have built our Surrey Community Fund which allows us, using our local knowledge and expertise, to get the funds to where the need is greatest quickly and efficiently.
