Coronavirus (COVID-19) and FCC Communities Foundation


FCC Communities Foundation have worked from home since 16 March 2020 and will continue to do so until we are able to open our office as normal. All staff have access to our full IT systems and the relevant support to enable them to carry out their roles effectively. All staff can be contacted on their usual telephone numbers and email addresses.

Our grant management and new rounds process continue to operate as usual in these challenging times, but we have the following advice:

Existing Grantees

If you already have a grant from FCC Communities Foundation and are experiencing difficulties or delays with your project it is important you let us know as soon as possible. We understand that some projects have experienced delay or may be further delayed or may not be able to be open to the public as planned.

We do not want to see projects fail due to the current situation, and are happy to work with you, but it is important you contact us to let us know how your project is affected so we can advise you accordingly. Please contact us by emailing your grant manager or grant administrator, or by calling us on 01953 717165.

New Applicants

If you are in the process of applying to us for a grant, or are thinking of doing so, our online application system is operating as normal. It is important you download and read our guidance as it explains what we can and cannot fund. If you have any questions or queries regarding an application and what you need to supply, please call us on 01953 717165.
