LCRCares is a new crowdfunding campaign to raise £1million to support community and voluntary organisations on the frontline of helping the city region’s communities cope with the impact of Coronavirus. Local people are volunteering their help in so many ways. They are our community heroes and they urgently need our support.
The money raised will be distributed to local organisations who are providing essential support to communities such as:
- Food/care package delivery to vulnerable people self-isolating
- Delivery of services and projects supporting the most vulnerable, such older people e.g. a telephone support/friendship service or delivering online activities to help reduce isolation
- Emotional and mental health support
- Financial Inclusion, support to access benefits and debt advice
The fund is being managed by the Community Foundation for Merseyside, a registered charity that has distributed in excess of £40m to grass root community groups and charities across the Liverpool City Region and a long held reputation for ensuring funding is provided to the most vulnerable.
Please give whatever you can to #LCRCares to help those most vulnerable in the Liverpool City Region as a result of the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.
