One Community Foundation understands the impact that the Coronavirus will have upon communities. With this in mind, the Foundation and its donors have come together to provide a response to the growing emergency. They are keen to make sure that the organisations helping those most affected get the support that they need, so have launched a Coronavirus Emergency Fund in partnership with NET (National Emergencies Trust).
