Sutton Giving Covid-19 Crisis Fund - Has changed to the Sutton Giving Covid-19 Rebuild Fund
The Sutton Giving COVID-19 Crisis Fund has been running since 20th April 2020 and has awarded over £88,000.00 to local Voluntary and Community Sector organisations to help support them through the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Sutton Giving Panel felt that the time was right to relook at the direction of the Fund and it has been agreed that the emphasis will now focus on REBUILD.
Objective of the REBUILD Fund is:
To support organisations in redesigning their service offer to local residents and communities in the context of the challenges faced during the COVID-19 Crisis and the insight gained
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.
