PFS fundraisers have been drafted in to extend public health capacity in the London Borough of Redbridge, facilitating home-based Covid-19 testing.
While our fundraisers typically work to support national charities, we have been delighted to pivot to deliver coronavirus outreach services at such a key time in the fight against the pandemic.
Working in partnership with Redbridge Council, PFS teams are delivering free home testing kits, information and support to households across the borough. To find out more about this new public health outreach service, read this news story in LocalGov or contact Kunal Patel.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the charities we work with. Many are now facing a significant income shortfall. That's why we're delighted to be back up and running, working with some truly exceptional causes and connecting them with supporters up and down the country.
Rest assured, we're taking extra steps to keep everyone safe, including introducing new Covid safety training for our fundraisers. See our Covid-19 policy below (updated December 2020).
The Chartered Institute of Fundraising has come together with the Fundraising Regulator to release new guidance documents for fundraising in Covid times. We've embedded these new standards into our Covid training and safety measures.
Daniel Fluskey the IoF's head of policy & external affairs, said: "Charities have taken a massive hit to their income due to the coronavirus pandemic, and restarting fundraising is going to be really important to keep charity services running as well as enabling the sector to play its full role in wider recovery."
