Grants Manager Katie Baldock said: “Throughout the pandemic, we have been impressed by the work that Churchill Fellows are doing to support those most impacted by this crisis. With this third round of grants, Fellows will continue to respond to current challenges along with testing new approaches that can be adopted permanently. These projects range widely, from supporting those affected by addiction to responding to the needs of disadvantaged children.”

This is the third round of grants from our Covid-19 Action Fund, which was launched in April 2020. To date the fund has provided a total of £1,072,070 in grants to 92 Churchill Fellows. We would like to thank all those individuals and partners who have generously supported the Covid 19 Action Fund, for their contribution to this work.

A preliminary report and film based on Fellows' learnings from the pandemic period can be viewed here. Further lessons will be gathered as the situation evolves, and made available to practitioners and policymakers in all sectors.
