COVID-19 Equine Rescues Emergency Fund


Grants are available for equine welfare and rescue organisations in the UK which have experienced financial and operational challenges as a result of the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.

Maximum value:  £5,000

Objectives of Fund

The purpose of the Fund is to help smaller equine welfare organisations across the UK whose finances and operations have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.

Value Notes

Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

Who Can Apply

Applications will be considered from smaller equine rescue organisations (with a turnover of less than £1.5 million). Only registered charities and not-for-profit organisations can apply.

Applicants do not need to be NEWC members, but rescue and rehoming of equines should be the primary focus of the organisation.

If more applications are received than funds available, priority will be given to:

  • Organisations who do not have more than six months expenditure in hand.
  • Organisations who are NEWC members.


Applicants are advised to contact the funder to confirm whether restrictions apply.

Eligible Expenditure

Grants are intended to help equine rescue organisations to cover activities which have been directly affected by the ongoing coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.

How To Apply

The deadline for the final application round is 15 January 2021.

Applications should be made online, using the application form on the PPCT website.
