This campaign has been created to support 26 organisations who offer support, services and opportunities to their local communities. All of these organisations have come under increased pressure due to Covid-19 and this has effected their ability to operate. Many have experienced a sharp rise in the number of people needing their help, others have been prevented from undertaking the activities which usually generate their income and all have struggled due to the rise in competition for grant funding.
All are Community Heroes who urgently need your support to survive!
The organisations include those working in health, education, food parcels, community centres, domestic violence support, Music, Film, sports, parenting support, community events and Dance. In total, these 26 organisations support over 15,000 people on a daily basis and their loss would be devastating to the communities they support.
All the organisations rely heavily on volunteers and in-kind support to operate but without being able to cover their basic running costs, they will no longer be around!
