This form is aimed at Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise Groups’ (VCFSE) who would like to submit an application to coordinate/deliver an event or activity in response to COVID-19. The fund is aimed at Pregnant Mothers and Children aged 0-3 years old and their parents or primary carers, living in the ABSS wards.

The application process includes the following stages:

  • Submission of the ABSS Engagement Fund Extension COVID-19 Response Form by a designated VCSEF.
  • Stage 1 Screening of the application form by ABSS and SAVS.
  • Stage 2 A final review of the application form by the Reference Group, where a decision will be made as to whether the funding will be awarded or not. Unsuccessful application forms will be provided with feedback. Please note that this will not prevent organisations from resubmitting a COVID-19 Response Form.

All application forms will be reviewed within one week, with the aim of providing feedback within two weeks of the submission date.

Please refer to the ABSS Engagement Fund Extension – response to COVID-19 guidance document for further details on the parameters and process.
