Funder statement on Covid-19, March 2020
We, along with a wider group of funders, recognise that the covid-19 outbreak is an exceptional event that will have an impact on civil society groups, and want to offer reassurance that we stand with the sector during this time. We wish to be as helpful to grantees as possible during the coming weeks and months so that civil society groups can focus on the vital work of supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. We understand that there will be times when staff and volunteers will not be available, when beneficiaries may need services to be provided in different ways, or when systems need to be flexible to ensure that needs are met.
If you have any concerns or challenges that you think we can support you with please don’t hesitate to get in touch (email is preferable at the moment).
Please stay in communication with us and let us know if you need to make any changes to your programmes.
