The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on those we support in a number of ways. We will continue to be as helpful and flexible as possible.
We took 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 need to be delivered in different ways and that ‘business as usual’ is not always possible. We have remained in contact with all our current and prospective grantees and we have seen 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. 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:
