Coronavirus – Important Information

In response to COVID-19, we are working with voluntary and community organisations to support our local communities. We’ll try to gather the most up-to-date and accurate information on this page – please check back regularly.

 

Essential Information

The latest advice from the UK Government can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus. This includes advice on what measures people should take to protect themselves from infection, guidance for businesses and employers,  plus a range of other announcements.

For information on symptoms and what to do if you think you or someone you know might be infected, please head to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or use the online symptom checker at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.

 

Advice for Community Groups

Many of our member organisations are on the front line supporting our local communities. COVID-19 is presenting big challenges, but also opportunities to step up and support these communities.

Read our advice for managing finances in these difficult times.

Read our advice for people setting up an informal community group to support people.

Read our advice for existing community groups who are considering their response to COVID-19.

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation has launched a Cambridgeshire Coronavirus Community Fund, with grants of £1,000 to £5,000 for organisations that are supporting isolated older and vulnerable people at this time. Please click here for more information and to apply.

If you manage a building that remains open, consider using these posters from Public Health England.
