Information on management of applications during Corornavirus pandemic

During this challenging time, Leeds Cares has taken the decision to temporarily stop processing new or existing applications and instead work with senior colleagues at the Trust to prioritise urgent requests for support. We are working closely with the Trust to identify projects that would be most helpful and ensure Leeds Cares can prioritise funding that will support frontline Leeds Teaching Hospital staff during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have developed a Fast-Track process to deal responsively with urgent applications which details can be found on our handy visual guide.

As soon as we return to ‘business as usual’ we will begin processing applications again and proceed with the implementation of our online application process.

For any non-urgent funding queries please contact the Leeds Cares Funding Team on
