Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 has presented the community and voluntary sector with previously unimaginable challenges. 
Clann Credo wants to help.
We want to hear about the challenges your organisation is facing so that we can work with you to find solutions. Please contact your local Social Finance Executive to discuss any difficulties your non-profit organisation is facing – their contact details are HERE.
During the early lockdown period, Clann Credo actively lobbied government for financial supports to the sector. We had some success, leading to the COVID-19 Stability Fund and the Innovate Together Fund, but more is needed and we continue to lobby on your behalf.
Then, as we all started to look towards ways of re-establishing our activities, Clann Credo held online events to hear about the issues from your perspective and to listen to each other’s ideas. You can find recordings and presentations from these events here:
