***Temporary changes to our grant making procedures***

Following the launch of our Emergency Appeal, we expect to handle a great many applications to this fund. We are committed to processing these as quickly as possible in order to reach those in greatest need during this crisis. To this end we have currently suspended all regular grant-making for projects; I am sure you will understand where our priorities must lie. It is our sincere hope that we will be able to fund a great many of your invaluable projects in time, when we emerge out of this epidemic.

We are currently in discussions with our donors, many of whom have been incredibly generous with donations to our Emergency Fund and it may be likely that criteria for some funds could change temporarily, please keep an eye on our website for any announcements.

We will contact all applicants individually, but please bear with us in these unprecedented times.
