We know the Coronavirus outbreak is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. We also know this will be a challenging time for organisations we support –- charities, social enterprises and community organisations – many of whom work with the most vulnerable.
We want to reassure all the organisations we work with – with grants, loans and advice – that we will continue to support you; and that we will continue to be flexible in whatever ways are possible to help you deal with the challenges in the coming months.
We have co-signed a statement by London Funders which makes clear our commitment to adapt activities, to discuss dates, to financial flexibility, and to listen. We are looking with urgency at our own funds and programmes to see what we can do – and already working with other social investors on joint and collective action: we’ve co-signed a statement with many of them too.
Please get in touch with us or directly with your relationship manager with any questions or concerns. We are fortunate to be able to work from home at SIB, so we will get back to you as quickly as normal.
