In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are focusing our attention on supporting members and their local communities through this uncertain time. Our work on loneliness and mental health will be particularly important in tackling the challenges that many of us are facing.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place, some campaign actions have been paused or amended. You will find further information about our current areas of focus on each individual campaign page.
