One City Fund

A group of charities and community organisations from across Wolverhampton have come together to launch an urgent appeal in the midst of COVID-19.

We are calling for businesses and individuals to pledge your support for a resilience fund. All money raised will be used to alleviate some of the worst effects of the pandemic for people in Wolverhampton.

We have launched this crowdfunding campaign because we have been inspired by the incredible community response to COVID- 19 and we know that many more people want to help. Reports are showing that there are certain sections of society who will be disproportionately affected by the pandemic and we want to make sure that these people receive the support and help they need.

Agencies across Wolverhampton are coming together to support the city’s most vulnerable residents at this difficult time. But there is a further group of people who are in desperate need - in fuel poverty, families reliant on free school meals, on zero hours contracts whose hours have been slashed, homeless people, disabled people, people with mental health issues and people who have no access to technology.

The fund and the small grants fund will be administered by the WVSC. Organisations wishing to make a bid to the small grants fund are asked to email Saffi Price on SPrice@wolverhamptonvsc.org.uk.
