The Arnold Clark Community Fund

Helping UK charities and local community groups at a time of crisis.

Due to high demand, the Arnold Clark Community Fund has temporarily suspended new applications. We aim to reopen applications in October.

The Arnold Clark Community Fund is open to all UK registered charities and local community groups who need financial assistance due to the coronavirus pandemic. The fund is also open to community interest companies, charitable incorporated organisations and social enterprises.

When we’re back, applications will be granted on a weekly basis with 500 applications granted per month.

If your application is successful, we’ll email you to let you know. If you haven’t heard from us, your application will be rolled over to the following week(s).

Why we’ve created the Arnold Clark Community Fund

It’s a devastating fact that due to COVID-19, one in ten UK charities are expected to file for bankruptcy (Pro Bono Economics, 2020).

So, as part of our commitment to give back to the communities in which we operate, we’ve created a fund to help registered UK charities and local community groups continue their important work during this challenging time.

How to apply for funding

Due to high demand the Arnold Clark Community Fund has temporarily suspended new applications. Please check back soon for further updates.

In the meantime, please check your eligibility here. When the fund reopens and if you’re eligible, all you will have to do is simply complete the application form, and tell us about your charity or community group and how we can help.

Please note that we’re only accepting applications directly from charities or local community groups and we will only accept one application per organisation.
