Voluntary Sector response to Covid-19

 Voluntary Sector leaders and partners met today (March 17, 2020) and agreed a set of actions to support local organisations and communities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Community Action Norfolk, Norfolk Community Foundation, Voluntary Norfolk and Momentum are coordinating a response. This will include a centralised point to register volunteers and manage support requests, whilst working closely with existing organisations to make sure they have the tools they need to respond.

We will also be launching a funding call, asking for public donations, to try to ensure our local organisations can keep going over this difficult time.  We are currently working to put these systems in place and will be sending out details over the next few days.

It is fantastic to see the level of community response but it is important to remember this will be a long-term effort.

We know many of you want to get started now but we ask you to please be patient. In the meantime here is  a link to some general information but most importantly please stay safe and well
