In response to the Covid-19 crisis and the potentially unprecedented challenges it brings for civil society and philanthropy, we have been speaking to a range of people across the sector to find out how the pandemic has affected them so far and how they are responding.

In part one:

  • Fran & Will Perrin, founders and trustees of Indigo Trust, explain why they recently announced they are going to increase their annual grantmaking significantly to help address the short term impacts of the crisis.
  • Rob Williamson, CEO of the Community Foundation for Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, tells us about the role they are playing in leading and coordinating the philanthropic response in the North East.
