COVID-19 Information & Advice

Given the current circumstances related to COVID-19, YCF is working to support the voluntary sector in Camden. YCF will take the following actions over the coming weeks:

  • YCF staff are working from home, but can be reachable via phone or email
  • All YCF events have been cancelled, including information sessions, funding surgeries and network meetings
  • We are exploring alternative methods of providing capacity building support to members
  • We are carrying out a member needs assessment to determine the best way to provide support

YCF has joined other funders in co-signing a statement from London Funders. The statement communicates our recognition of the significant impact that COVID-19 will have on the sector and the communities they serve and our commitment to offer as much support as required during this difficult time – please click here for the full statement and a list of all the signatories.

ONLINE MEMBER SERVICES

Many YCF members have made the difficult decision to close youth centres or postpone services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, online services can be an effective method of keeping engaged with children and young people in Camden. YCF invites you to check out online services and digital tools offered by YCF members.
