Many people, both employees and employers, want to do something to give back in the pandemic, but just don’t know what would be best. The current risk of infection mean in-person volunteering isn’t always possible, many people are in overwhelm unable to add additional responsibilities, and, frankly, many charities are struggling financially. Moss HR spoke to one charity to find out how organisations can still play their part.
Nicky Shepard, the CEO of Abbey People based in Cambridge said;
“This pandemic has been a long-haul, and it isn’t over yet. The first quarter is traditionally a quieter time for donations following the Christmas rush, and coupled with the added need from this new lockdown, charities are finding this year hard already.”
Here are Nicky’s top three ideas for how your organisation can help, whatever its size.
“Do consider finding a local charity to partner with, some of these smaller organisations have fallen through the gaps of government support, and many have limited (or no) reserves to fall back on.”
Whatever you do, keep you and yours safe and well.
