The aim of the Covid Recovery Programme for Organisations is to reduce or remove operating deficits, which have arisen in the 2021/22 financial year because of the pandemic. Operating deficits, which are unrelated to COVID, will not be eligible.

The programme has been co-designed with seven sectoral bodies who will deliver the scheme and make awards of up to £50,000*.

The programme’s overarching aim is to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on not-for-profit organisation in the culture, arts, languages, heritage, sports, charities and social enterprise sectors.

All organisations across these sectors should consult the delivery partners’ websites and social media platforms for further information on opening dates, closing dates, pre-application information, eligibility and assessment criteria, guidance and application forms.
