Project Everyone is an online festival bringing charities together to share guidance, insights and expertise in the face of the current pandemic.

Here to Help - Salus

The online Wellbeing Hub www.salus.org.uk has over 100 videos and Factsheets which we know will be incredibly beneficial to people who need to support their own health from the comfort of their own homes or places of work. If elderly and young alike are having to work from home or self-isolate our Hub can help build resilience in mental and physical health.

Neighbourly, along with the support of partner businesses M&S, Lidl, Aldi, Danone and Coca-Cola European Partners, are launching a series of micro-grants of up to £400, to support good causes that are helping communities affected by the new Coronavirus outbreak.

McDonald's Food Drop

In response to COVID-19 McDonald's will be donating a range of chilled and other products including bread buns directly from their stores today. We’ve created an online platform for any charity to book collection slots from the nearby stores.

Please can you share this with your network via email and socials, so as many groups as possible know there is food available that they can access.
