Apply to Hackney Giving

Living with Covid programme

Is your organisation a voluntary and community sector (VCS) group continuing to work with people most affected by the coronavirus pandemic in Hackney and/or the City of London?

Hackney Giving is open for applications.

Types of grants

Two types of grants are available:

Community Champion Network grants up to £3,000 for participation in the public health Community Champion network for sharing information and insights (open only to organisations who held a previous Covid-19 Information or Vaccine Outreach grant and which have, or have had, a Community Champion).

Outreach: Living with Covid grants up to £10,000 for work to increase awareness of Covid-safe behaviours, and to increase vaccination uptake in the areas of Hackney with the lowest vaccination rates.  

For full details and eligibility criteria, please download the programme guidance. Please note that the two strands of funding have different application forms – be sure to use the correct one.


The deadline for applications is 11am, 14 June 2022.


How to Apply sessions

There will be two “how to apply” workshops. These workshops offer you the chance to hear a bit more about the funding as well as how to complete the application form. To book a place, please use the links below:
