Manchester Emergency Fund
The Fund is a charity fund set up after the Manchester attack, following a phenomenal outpouring of emotion and support from around the world.
So far, the fund has raised £18.6m and distributed almost £15m of that total.
The objectives of the fund are
- to relieve financial need among the victims and survivors of the disaster including families and the dependants of people killed or injured.
- to relieve sickness or disability whether physical or mental of victims of the disaster and their dependants.
The money has been released in phases to ensure that people can get help quickly. Funds have been distributed to bereaved families, those who were left with long-term injuries, those who had a hospital stay and those who have been psychologically traumatised and were in the foyer of the Arena.
