Coronavirus Response Resources Page

In response to the wide scale impact Coronavirus is having on our communities, SYCF is working in a number of ways to provide information and support to the community groups and charities working in our region. This page will be updated as often as possible to ensure the most up to date resources are available.

South Yorkshire Community Foundation has been praised by NAVCA for our role in the Voluntary Community Sector Emergencies Partnership to help co-ordinate the local response against Covid-19, sharing insight, information and supporting local community groups through funding.

Keep safe everyone.
