COVID-19 Update: The BayTrust team is working remotely and applications for funding are still being accepted as normal.

Focus at this time is on supporting those most in need and those groups who will make a meaningful difference to our communities.

We are working with our regional funding partners on developing a rapid response funding process for organisations that are experiencing an immediate funding shortfall and/or a significant increase in demand on their services as a result of Coronavirus and its associated impacts.

If this applies to your organisation and you would like more information, in the first instance please call Sam Cummins, BayTrust Funding Manager, on 027 772 3235, or Alastair Rhodes, BayTrust CEO, on 021 921 737.
