As an urban health foundation focused on health inequalities we, like so many others, are deeply motivated to minimise the impact of the pandemic both on our local communities and on the partners we work with.
We partner with hundreds of organisations and people across our urban health programmes, our endowment and property work, and our role as the charity for Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. Our priority is to support them through these uncertain times so that they can, to the greatest extent possible, continue to offer vital services to thousands of people across our boroughs and further beyond.
We are in close contact with our partners to understand what support they need and to shape our help. Our aim is to be a rapid, responsive and flexible partner. From early conversations, we understand that organisations and projects, as well as the people who benefit from their work, will be impacted differently and require varying types of support. We have already begun adjusting existing grants and making significant new funding available.
We are also thinking about the world after the current crisis has passed, and the steps we and our partners can take now to prepare for it.
We hope that we have reached the vast majority of our partners over the past week. If we have missed you, and you need to speak to anyone about an existing project with us, do please just get in touch with your usual contact at the Charity. We would like to talk with you to understand the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your work and the support you might need.
