COVID-19 RESPONSE

COVID-19 RESPONSE

We recognise that the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and has already had a significant impact on those we support in a number of ways. At Badur, we aim to be as helpful and flexible as possible as things continue to change on a scale incomparable in recent times.

We have taken our own approach to proactively support the teams, charities and social enterprises in our network and importantly, the vulnerable communities who rely on their work. We understand that activities will need to be delivered in different ways and that ‘business as usual’ is not possible. We have been in contact with all our current and prospective grantees and we’re already seeing thoughtful, considered examples of how organisations are adapting to meet the heightened needs of their communities. We also joined the COVID-19 Funders Pledge.

We are considering relief support for our network on a case-by-case basis in order to address the individual needs of each organisation. Due to the magnitude of the pandemic, we are providing a range of support from funding to cover core operating expenses, through to support towards equipment and food parcels.

Here are some examples of the additional support we have provided in response to the crisis:
