Charities are being offered an essential lifeline to allow them to carry out essential services during the coronavirus outbreak with grants available of up to £10,000. Norfolk Community Foundation is encouraging charities on the frontline who are making a real difference within our communities to get in touch and apply for a grant. While the pandemic is affecting everyone, it’s clearly having a big impact on particular vulnerable groups that may not have their usual level of access to support so grants have never been more important.

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is still flying and saving lives during the Covid-19 pandemic, but the cost of keeping its crews safe has been significant. The charity has had to quickly adapt its operating procedures and source large amounts of personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep its two critical care teams safe and able to support the region’s emergency services. The estimated cost of acquiring the additional PPE now required over a six-month period is over £100,000. The charity has launched an emergency appeal for donations to help fund the PPE, which is protecting its crews and keeping the air ambulance teams safe. More than £25,000 of unbudgeted funds has already been spent on items such as respirators, high-protection masks, visors, suits, gowns and goggles to protect…

The Government asked all local authorities to find suitable accommodation for homeless people in shelters and hostels to enable them to self isolate properly. All those identified have now been relocated to alternative accommodation where they have their own room and are able to follow social distancing guidance. They are also being provided with welfare support, 3 meals a day, toiletries and will soon be provided with clothing bundles. This was no mean feat and would not have been achieved without the support of partners in west Norfolk providing assistance. Cllr Adrian Lawrence, Cabinet Member for Housing said: “I would like to thank all of those involved for their efforts in ensuring the safety and protection of the homeless in our area. While we know this is a time of…
