Coordinated Community Support logoProviders of emergency financial assistance are at the frontline of responding to Covid-19 and with restrictions across Wales and England likely to last for some time, new challenges will undoubtedly emerge as the situation continues to evolve into the spring.

To capture valuable insight from those providing emergency financial assistance, The Children’s Society, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Turn2Us and Lloyd’s Bank Foundation are relaunching their emergency support providers live issue collection form.

They want to hear from you if you are providing support such as food, furniture and white goods, housing and benefits advice about the issues your organisation, and the individuals you support, are experiencing.

The information you share will be fed to local and national decision makers to highlight the challenges being faced by individuals and families in financial crisis, as well as the organisations they rely on for support.

Submissions to the form will be used to write briefings which will be made publicly available and learning will be shared with respondents where contact details are provided. They encourage multiple responses as new and additional issues arise so that they can capture as much evidence as possible as the situation changes.

(Please share the link to the form amongst your networks, as they are keen to gather responses from across Wales and England)

Submissions to the live issue form last year were collated into evidence notes on themes including digital exclusion, coordination of food provision, access to welfare benefits advice and support for people with No Recourse to Public Funds.
