Charities awarded £200k from dormant accounts

The Jersey Community Foundation has awarded almost £200,000 of grants to charities for projects which help people to cope with the impact of Covid-19.

The funds are part of £2m released from dormant bank accounts in order to assist the Island community with the consequences of the pandemic, the States said.

Recipients include Macmillan Jersey, which is to use its grant for a community cancer support service.

The funding was also being used to support several internships for people with disabilities or long-term health conditions “who may have found it difficult to find work due to Covid-19”, the States said.
