The launch comes in response to recent surveys that found 9 out of 10 Black and Ethnic-led community organisations are chronically under-funded and many are likely to close due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Black Funding Network will support racial justice, social mobility, alleviation of economic hardship, education and youth services, health and wellbeing, community development, arts and cultural advancement, history and heritage, and social enterprise.
