The charity is one of just 100 across the UK to have received the sum from the Barclays Covid-19 Community Aid Package – a nationwide scheme designed to support charities working in the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.

The grant will be put towards Acorns ongoing work providing emotional and practical care and support for hundreds of families across the West Midlands, work which has become ever-more needed for those impacted by the global health crisis.

Emma Aspinall, director of Care at Acorns, said: “The grant will make a huge difference and help ensure Acorns can continue providing the support families need, whenever they need it.”

Nigel Higgins, Barclays chairman, said: “We hope that by partnering with the Acorns and many other charities across the UK, collectively we can ensure as many people as possible in the communities in which we live and work are supported through this crisis.”
