COVID-19 Support and relief efforts

Date updated: 3/01/2021

Many of our stakeholders are asking how they can support relief efforts around COVID-19.

If you are a City business and wish to donate money

You can do so through the London Communities Response Fund which is being administered and convened by London Funders, the umbrella body for Corporate, Statutory and Independent Funders in London. This fund is being supported by the City of London’s Charitable Funder, City Bridge Trust which has donated £1m to the fund together with a further £1m from the Greater London Authority. Other significant equivalent donations to this fund from independent and corporate funders will be announced imminently. If you are interested in contributing to this fund,​ please email London Funders.

If you would prefer to donate to a national rather than London-focused fund, please donate to the National Emergencies Trust

If you would like to donate to The Lord Mayor’s Appeal which supports Samaritans, Place2Be, Onside Youth Zones and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, all of whom will be very actively working to support their service users in this challenging time, please contact the Lord Mayor’s Appeal team.​

If you are an individual and wish to donate funding, please donate to the National Emergencies Trust or email the Lord Mayor’s Appeal team.

If you are an individual and wish to volunteer please link to the GLA’s Team London website.
