Within three weeks at the start of the first national lockdown in March, we had launched the VRF Emergency Fund. Over the course of the next five months we distributed just over £1.65million in emergency funding across the UK.

This year we have had the unprecedented challenge of responding to the COVID pandemic. While the country entered the first lockdown in March, we looked at how we could adapt the VRF (Vicar’s Relief Fund) to meet the changing needs of those experiencing homelessness.

Within three weeks at the start of the national lockdown we had launched the VRF Emergency Fund, temporarily replacing the VRF. Over the course of the next five months we gave out more than 4,500 grants and distributed just over £1.65million in emergency funding across the UK.

The report below presents a snapshot of the data we received through the applications made to the VRF Emergency Fund during this period. Your donations made it possible, and for that we remain thankful.
