We are working closely with our community partners to understand in detail the challenges they face in serving local people at present, and with our business partners to meet those needs through remote volunteering, employment support and fundraising.
Everyone knows this period is really challenging — social distancing, new remote working habits, jobs losses, school closures likely — and some will be much harder hit than others. ELBA is ensuring that with our business partners, we support our east London community.
