  • Disaster and Emergency Relief Awards

    • The Commission's general policy in respect of Emergency and Disaster Relief awards is to support appeals launched by the UK Disasters Emergency Committee (the DEC) following a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis. The Commission will exceptionally consider applications from individual charities for awards in response to non-DEC led disasters following a catastrophic natural disaster where the day-to-day patterns of life are suddenly disrupted and the population requires supplies of basic food, shelter and medical supplies to protect them in the immediate aftermath of the disaster.  Charities applying for an exceptional award are strongly advised to read the Commission's guidance notes and to contact the Commission at overseasaid@gov.gg before submitting an application
    • Disaster emergency aid funding will normally be used to provide water, sanitation, emergency shelter, medical services and emergency feeding programmes to disaster affected areas in the immediate aftermath of the disaster and to assist in getting emergency supplies within the areas affected by the disaster.  Awards will be to a maximum of £50,000 per disaster or emergency. The application must set out how the charity proposes to use the funding requested and the budget must show what items will be purchased and in what quantity.
