Chairman Stuart Nagler talks to Leona Fensome about how the charity sector stands to lose £4.3 billion over the summer period due to cancelled events and loss of funding. Now more than ever, communities need charitable organisations to continue and to be enabled to do critical work for vulnerable people.
Communities 1st are in contact with many local charities and community groups to identify how they can help support you and your organisation in response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. They have a new community directory so everyone can see what organisations are able to deliver during this time.
Where possible, please let them know what services or initiatives your organisation is delivering during these challenging times and how they can help you - whether that's with advice, volunteer recruitment, capacity building, accessing available funds or any other issues that you're becoming aware of within your organisation or in your communities.
If a group or local organisation would like to discuss anything, please email email@example.com or call on 01727 743018.
