Buckinghamshire Charity Update

3rd April 2020

In this weeks newsletter, you will find useful links that have been collated and created by The Clare Foundation team.

We are currently working with other charities, charity leaders, volunteer agencies and experts in their field, to ensure that you are as well informed as possible.

We have also been working closely with the Community Department at Buckinghamshire Council and respective bodies collating pertinent information and filtering what is out on the web – at the time of this newsletter we trust that it is all relevant and useful.

Funding for Charities

For an ever increasing list of funding available for charities and individuals (c120 currently) please use this link: Charity Excellence Framework – Covid-19 Funding.

Are you aware of any other funding available? If so, please email Karen at and it will be added to the next update.
