Covid-19 – still standing with the sector

In April 2020, we joined forces with funders UK-wide to commit to supporting our partners in whatever way we could during Covid-19. Ahead of a second national lockdown in November, we reiterated this support by subscribing to this statement, co-ordinated by London Funders. 

As in the spring 2020 lockdown, our team continues to work remotely but with full access to emails and calls. Our service to our partners remains uninterrupted. If this 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 email our general enquiries inbox (monitored 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday).
