COVID-19 Resources and Information

CVSBEH staff are all still working from home and keen to offer help and support:

  • if you’re an existing community group
  • if you are a new group responding to the COVID-19 crisis
  • if you want to donate or volunteer to help during this crisis

You can contact us by email we’ll get back to you promptly.

We are working to keep this page updated with the latest information you need as well as sharing the impact the COVID-19 crisis is having on the charity sector and those it serves. 

For the government’s latest guidance see  GOV.UK: COVID-19 guidance for the charity sector  and  NHS coronavirus advice.
