Coronavirus: How you can help

In difficult times like these, communities come together. We're launching an emergency response appeal and we’ve put these packs together with our friends at MK Community Foundation and Community Action: MK, to show what you can do to make the biggest positive impact.

Milton Keynes Council and MK Community Foundation are launching a special appeal fund, MK Emergency Response Appeal, to which people can donate to support MK charities and community groups helping to support vulnerable people through the coronavirus outbreak.

Milton Keynes Council is providing £50,000 to kick start the appeal, with MK Community Foundation adding another £50,000, bringing the initial total to £100,000.  The appeal aims to reach £400,000 by the end of July.  All the money donated will be distributed to groups in Milton Keynes who play a vital part in supporting vulnerable people, such as Age UK and The Food Bank.

To donate, visit:

Community groups looking to apply for funding should visit:

or call 01908 690276

The Council, the MK Community Foundation and Community Action: MK have worked together on a Good Neighbour Guide with some do's and don’ts for helping out in your community.

Our Community Support Guide also has advice on volunteering, being vigilant against scamming, and what to do if you have concerns about someone’s welfare or safety.  Simply click on the text below the images at the bottom of the page to download a copy of the booklet.
