VCS Emergencies Partnership Bulletin

In the government laying out their roadmap towards easing restrictions, the VCS Emergencies Partnership continues to support where needed: whether through supporting the ongoing vaccinations programme or the rapid testing in schools looking to re-open next week. They believe the insights gained, the connections made, between local and national, will enable us all to play our part in the journey ahead.

They have received an extension of funding from the Department of Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) which takes them to the end of June this year. In May, they will review key ‘triggers’ with DCMS to assess further extension. What might a post-COVID recovery society need and how can the Emergencies Partnership best support that?

This newsletter focuses on schools rapid testing support, features Medway Voluntary Action and some good news stories.
