Covid-19 Funding

Micro grants to support groups in Berwickshire during COVID-19

Bavs has been working with the National Lottery Community Fund to offer micro grants to help groups in Berwickshire. The grants are to support your group and the work you are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The original pot for the £500 grants has been spent. We are now able to offer micro grants of up to £250. Groups that applied for the £500 grants can apply again. The grants aim to respond to the immediate needs of community groups and charities, but we will be prioritising:

  • volunteer costs
  • basic food items
  • communication support.

Please note: The micro-grants are for community groups, local charities and social enterprises – unfortunately we can’t fund national charities and freelance consultants.

Please apply online – it is a short, simple application form. As soon as we get your application we will make a decision and let you know very quickly how we will get the funds to you.

  • A list of organisations that have so far been awarded grants can be found here.
