Covid-19 – a message for our partners

Last update: Thursday 28 May 2020

We recognise many of our partners face increased difficulties because of Covid-19. This is an exceptional time, and we’re committed to supporting you as much as we can. That’s why we’ve subscribed to this statement, which has been co-ordinated by London Funders on behalf of grant-making organisations across the UK. 

Our team is working remotely but has full access to emails and calls. As such, our service to you should not be majorly affected. If the situation changes, we will update you here. 

If you wish to speak to us directly, please get in touch with your usual Co-op Foundation contact or use our form below (monitored 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday).
