Covid-19 Safety Precautions

 25th June 2020:

 
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 on our website HERE. At the moment we can’t meet you face-to-face, but we can talk on the phone or schedule a virtual drop-in clinic via Zoom – whichever suits you best.
 
Our CEO, Paul O'Sullivan, has been very active with our partners lobbying government for financial supports to the sector. We have had some success to date leading to the COVID-19 Stability Fund and the Innovate Together Fund, but more is needed, and we will continue to lobby on your behalf.
 
As we all start to look towards ways of re-establishing our activities, we need to hear each other’s ideas. We at Clann Credo are helping the conversation along by hosting online events where we can all share ideas for rebuilding safe community activities. We hope you will join us so that we can make our tentative steps to recovering the sector together.
 
To hear about new funding opportunities and upcoming online events, sign up for our updates HERE, and follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
 
13th March 2020:
 
At Clann Credo, we are actively monitoring the current situation in Ireland with regards to Covid-19 and have undertaken all recommended precautions in relation to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and partners: community organisations, sports clubs, charities and social enterprises.

We have contingency plans in place to ensure that we are operating as normally as possible. Our regional Social Finance Executives are working remotely and can be contacted via email or their mobile phones. Applying the highest level of caution, we have suspended our normal practice of meeting customers face-to-face.

Our contact details are HERE.

And our friends at The Wheel have a lot of practical advice HERE.
