COVID - 19 wHAT WE'RE DOING
During this difficult period the gunnercooke foundation has been working hard to support our charities, social enterprises and volunteers in a number of ways.
Firstly responding to direct requests on how we can help. This has ranged from creating furlough letter templates to volunteers to make phone calls and deliveries of essential items to our charity's service users.
Through inspire, our hub leaders have offered and provided support on Crisis Communications, Business Continuity strategy and how to diversify the service offering to maintain income. We've also been helping in sharing emergency funding pots and links.
Our members have been amazing, pulling together and helping each other too, providing the real peer support through the relationships they've built.
the gunnercooke foundation are also pulling together SOS packages which will be distributed to those in the vulnerable categories - isolating for 12 weeks. The packages have now been distributed and we are continuing to collect baby and children's items via an Amazon wishlist - these will be donated to a number of family based charities.
We'd like to say a big thankyou to the following companies who generously donated;
- Keesing Media
- Knitters and many children for handmade items
We hope you all stay safe and well at this time.
