Action for Children unavoidably had to miss the Methodist Conference this year. We always enjoy meeting up with our Methodist friends and updating them on our work.
We would still like to share what is happening through a webinar.
Covid-19: Adapting to the changing needs of our children and families
Date: 4 August 2020
Venue: Online. Registration required
"More than 4.2 million children were locked in poverty before Covid-19 hit the UK. It was clear how a pandemic would make things worse for families who were already struggling. So, Action for Children sprang into action.
In this webinar, Action for Children staff tell how the charity rapidly acted to ensure that we could continue to support our children, young people and families in spite of the pandemic.
Disadvantaged children and families were disproportionately affected by the multitude of challenges that Covid-19 brought e.g. closed schools, loss of income, dealing with existing health conditions. Adapting our services and fundraising activities quickly gave families a lifeline in extremely difficult times."
