Evaluation of the Covid-19 Rapid Response Grant Programme

RPA has recently conducted an evaluation for the Fishmongers’ Company’s Charitable Trust and Seafarers UK with the aim to assess the impact of the Covid-19 Rapid Response Grant Programme on seafood businesses in the UK.

Key points considered within the study included the grant’s impact on retention of jobs, creation of new employment, increased profits, links with local communities, and increased awareness of locally caught seafood. The Fishmongers’ Company has published the report highlights in their article ‘Making a difference when the world changed – how our Covid-19 Rapid Response Grants landed in the seafood community’ with links to the final report and executive summary developed by RPA.
