Imago are delighted to have been one of the 329 charities in the UK to receive core funding through the Julia and Hans Rausing Trust’s Charity Survival Fund.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have seen our charity shop having to close for months during lockdown and numerous community fundraising activities have been cancelled or postponed. This was at a time when new referrals, requests for support and demand on our range of services saw dramatic increases.


Julia and Hans Rausing commented : “We were overwhelmed by both the quality and quantity of applications we received for the Charity Survival Fund. It highlighted to us the perilous state that so many amazing charities have found themselves in due to the loss of day to day income caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is because of this need that we increased the funding available through the Charity Survival Fund to £18 million, and we are pleased that this funding will enable so many extraordinary charities to continue their excellent work and support their local communities at this difficult time. We would like to thank every organisation that applied, and we hope the Charity Survival Fund will encourage others to support charities in need.”


This was the first time The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust accepted funding applications from charities. The donations will support charities’ core costs so that they can continue delivering existing programmes and work.
