Sutton Giving, hosted by Community Action Sutton, it is a local giving platform that aims to improve the lives of residents in Sutton and build a brighter future for our borough.
We are proud to be working in partnership with Sutton Council, Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group and our voluntary and community sector partners to launch the Sutton Giving COVID -19 Crisis Fund.
The key aim of the fund is
To assist voluntary and community sector groups and organisations providing services and support to individuals and families affected by the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
The grant is specifically for those organisations that are:
- Delivering COVID-19 Frontline Services OR
- Whose ability to operate has been severely impacted by the measures put in place to stem the pandemic
Sutton Giving COVID-19 Voluntary and Community Sector Appeal
This appeal is managed by Sutton Giving, which is part of Community Action Sutton (a registered charity). As a sector, we are continuing to work closely with the local NHS and Council to coordinate efforts, as well as with our Voluntary and Community sector friends and partners, to ensure that anyone in our community who needs support receives it.
Due to the overwhelming number of offers of help and food we have decided to set up an additional community hub to receive donations and coordinate activities. This additional distribution centre is intended to complement the central hub run by Sutton Council at the Westcroft Centre, which is already providing a weekly food delivery to the most vulnerable as well as being the first port of call for anyone who needs support (see below “Sutton Council: How to ask for help”). The need for this additional distribution centre was identified during our ongoing collaboration with Sutton Council and other partners.
