Unlocking the power of our community to respond better and recover stronger
We launched our Fund in April to help community and voluntary organisations meet the needs and challenges created by the Coronavirus. OCF’s new Community Resilience Fund was kick-started with an inspiring direct donation from the Indigo Trust.
Local organisations are best placed to respond quickly to the current crisis. The ‘might’ or power of these organisations rests with their combined resources. Many may be informal and run only by volunteers, others will have staff who could support and coordinate collective efforts more widely.
We want them to feel reassured and empowered to switch from their usual activity, redeploying their energy and expertise to doing the things that will make the biggest difference now.
