Resilience Fund – Vision Foundation

The Resilience Fund is primarily open to charities whose main purpose is in support of those living with or at risk of sight loss. If for the continuation of a project, this project must be in support of those living with or at risk of sight loss.

This funding can be used towards addressing barriers to resilience. This could include meeting an organisation’s core costs including salaries, the continuation or development of an existing project, contribution to rent or towards strengthening their systems and processes, as well as wellbeing of staff. In March 2022 we awarded the first round of resilience funding to the following organisations:

  • Amy and Friends
