Steve Morgan Foundation Emergency Grant

NEWCIS have been successful in gaining funding from the Steve Morgan Foundation Emergency Covid-19 Fund.

Steve Morgan Foundation Emergency Grant

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic the Steve Morgan Foundation introduced an emergency fund for charities and not for profit companies to support people affected by the virus. NEWCIS are delighted to announce that we have been successful in receiving funding until the end of June 2020.

What will the grant fund?

Food and Well-Being packs

The funding will be used to provide and deliver food and Well-Being packs and IT equipment to carers that are isolated, particularly in rural areas.

Tech equipment

There is the facility for NEWCIS to purchase tablets that carers can use to assist with keeping in touch with organisations such as ourselves as well as using the device during the pandemic to keep in touch with family, friends or do essential shopping or training that will be hosted virtually by NEWCIS in the near future.

Counselling

The grant has also allowed for additional counselling until the end of June. The counselling is for carers who are struggling with the emotional impact of the coronavirus. The sessions are time and session limited and will be made via telephone or Skype.
