Caritas Plymouth has been awarded further funding from the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation Trust to support provision of food to those in need across the Diocese of Plymouth due to Covid-19.
This scheme can provide funding to organisations offering immediate support to individuals and families across the Diocese of Plymouth, struggling as a direct result of the Coronavirus. The funding is for the purchase of food parcels, food vouchers, provision of food larders or other similar schemes. This support is for those who are unable to access help elsewhere (e.g. local foodbanks). Funding is limited and the scheme will close when all funds have been allocated.
In keeping with the social mission of the Church, funds will be given to projects which protect the poor and vulnerable according to need without any form of discrimination. Funds will only be awarded for activities which in no way act contrary to or undermine the teaching and practice of the Catholic Church in matters of faith and morals. All groups/organisations need to have appropriate safeguarding and data protection procedures.
The funding can support:
