Lancashire Red Rose Responding Fund

Why we need your help

The  Lancashire Red Rose Responding Fund supports those most in need in Lancashire communities and is managed by the Community Foundation for Lancashire. Funds are being raised to support those affected by the pandemic (and currently prioritising the mental health & wellbeing of people in Lancashire). Will you help us?

The COVID pandemic has had a profound impact on all our lives and longer term, has led to an evolving crisis on people’s mental health.*

At a time when we look to local charities & organisations for support, many who provide those services are struggling to remain open and secure funds to respond to increasing demand.**

Lancashire Responding

By supporting our Lancashire Red Rose Responding Fund you are enabling us to support charitable organisations throughout Lancashire in addressing mental health & wellbeing (as well as foodbanks, emergency provisions for the elderly, financial and debt assistance, care, activities and initiatives for those forced to isolate).

Help us get funding the groups supporting the most vulnerable. All of us together, looking after one another.

Since the start of the COVID pandemic, the Community Foundation for Lancashire has received and distributed nearly £2 million to 350+ charitable organisations, providing critical help across the county. Those funds were released on a weekly basis to organisations successfully applying for grants as quickly as possible and have now all been distributed.

Yet the crisis is not over. We need to keep our fundraising effort going to help Lancashire’s most vulnerable. Help us support people throughout the county and make a lasting difference in Lancashire.

Community Foundation for Lancashire

This is only one part of what we do. The Community Foundation for Lancashire is a key charitable funder in the county. Rather than supporting one charity, our day-to-day work helps hundreds of smaller local Lancashire charities and grassroots organisations. From our work, around 45,000 Lancashire people benefit each year from every walk of life. We do this by managing charitable funds for individuals and businesses looking to have a lasting impact in the county.

*More than two-thirds of adults in the UK (69%) report feeling somewhat or very worried about the effect COVID-19 is having on their life, and the Institute of Fiscal Studies found that mental health has worsened substantially

**According to the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) almost half of organisations (43%) surveyed reported an increase in demand for their services but a 48% decline in voluntary income. We need your help.
