** Some brighter news **

The board of the BDFA is pleased to announce an urgent family grant scheme to support families with the challenges faced due to Covid-19.


We have a designated pot of £10,000 to give out to families in the form of two family grants. Grants of up to £500 are available for families who face financial hardship that has been exacerbated by the current situation. Grants of up to £200 are available for all families as wellbeing and resilience grants to help families get through the next weeks and months.


We know that you are all facing a really difficult time emotionally and practically and we hope this grant scheme will help in a small way to lift spirits and overcome practical challenges.


We are ensuring grants are super easy to apply for and there will be a very quick turnaround.

In order for us to get this to you quickly, anyone who wishes to apply, please join our BDFA Coronavirus closed group here on Facebook, where you can find the application form.
