The TRIG Covid-19 Community Fund continues to provide important financial support to charities, not-for-profit and voluntary organisations, impacted by Covid-19.
Due to the pandemic, students at Fife College in Scotland were receiving most of their learning online. Many students did not have the appropriate equipment for this and were at a disadvantage. In October 2020, the college opened up an online application process which gave students the option to receive £500 to pay for a laptop/tablet device, or the opportunity to receive a high specification laptop at a reduced rate.
