Big shout out to all my fellow Third Sector workers!
Charities have found themselves under increasing pressure during this current crisis. Tackling loneliness, poverty, homelessness, hunger, discrimination, inequality and tirelessly working to make life better for those who need our help most, often as the first port of call in a crisis.
Covid 19 is exponentially increasing the workload, pressure and great need for the vital charity sector at the same time as the funding to provide these services has drastically decreased or stopped altogether.
They often go unnoticed but charities are doing all they can and more to grow and adapt their services to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in our society in incredibly difficult circumstances.
SCVO will capture the stories and the learning as a piece of social history. They will use those stories and learnings to stimulate debate on what next, where this takes us, what a “new normal” looks like. It will challenge traditional norms.
You can get involved on the #NeverMoreNeeded campaign page.
To support our charities, please do continue to donate if you can and, if you have time to volunteer, there are thousands of volunteering opportunities available too. Thank you x
