Free Coronavirus Resources for Charities

We are certainly living in strange times and we are trying to adjust. Charities of all sizes are exploring new ways to adjust to this new reality to survive. From work from home policies and crisis comms to staying in touch with their supporters and maintaining regular donations, the challenges are real.

Luckily, there are many people in the sector who are willing to help so we’ve organised a list of free coronavirus resources for charities.

The post will be updated regularly so make sure you keep an eye on it.
