Hackney Giving CCG Crisis and Recovery Grants - £23,185 available to support Turkish and Kurdish communities

City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has provided funding for voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations working with communities during the Covid-19 crisis. Hackney Giving is distributing this funding on behalf of the CCG.

In the previous grants round in September 2020, Turkish and Kurdish communities were underrepresented and so we are now seeking high quality proposals from organisations working with these communities

£23,185 is available for distribution to one or more not-for-profit organisations working in Hackney and the City of London who can support the work of statutory health and social care services through the Covid-19 crisis and recovery.

Proposals may focus on one area or be working across a number of the priorities below

1. Supporting people remotely. You will need to be able to demonstrate how your services will make a difference to the people they support and why it is important to them. Activities could include (but are not limited to) help to access statutory services, emotional support/befriending, helping to resolve practical issues, translation and signposting to appropriate specialist delivery. Remote delivery can include both phone and online support.

2. Helping people recuperate and remain safe at home after illness. You will need to be able to demonstrate how your activities will help people live safely following a period of illness (both coronavirus and other illnesses where social distancing rules are having an impact on care plans and recuperation).

3. Supporting digital connectivity. Projects funded under this theme must demonstrate how proposed activities will keep people connected to the communities and services that are important to them. Activities could include training to help residents use online services more confidently. Funding may be used to provide devices for vulnerable/older people, and for hardware to support remote work, as well as to provide phone credit.

4. Communication and information. Projects funded under this theme will help to ensure key messages reach diverse communities across Hackney and the City of London. We will fund advice provision in community languages and/or accessible formats such as easy read and large print. This provision should include messages from health providers, the Council and relevant voluntary and community sector organisations.
