Collective Voice is delighted to launch the Addiction and Recovery Covid-19 Response Fund.
Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations have been at the forefront of supporting people during the COVID-19 crisis. The Response Fund will support additional or adapted drug and/or alcohol support necessitated by the crisis – for service users or family members already supported, or for those not yet accessing drug/alcohol treatment.
The government has made available £750m to support VCSE organisations during the COVID-19 crisis. The Addiction and Recovery Response Fund has £322,035 available and contains funds drawn from this package (held by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) and supplemented by the Department of Health and Social Care.
- The fund was launched today, Wednesday 8 July 2020.
- The deadline for applications is 11:59pm on Wednesday 22 July 2020.
- Successful applicants will be notified by Monday 10 August 2020.
- Funds must be spent by 31 October 2020 but can be used to fund work dating back to 1 April 2020.
