“Doncaster hads got some brilliant charities who have worked on the ground throughout Covid-19,” she said.

“We want this to be a big thank you to them for everything that they have done.

“I have worked in the charity sector before and funding is tight.

“Any money that comes in goes straight back into the communities they work in.

“But their staff and volunteers still need the appropriate training.

“If they’re working in food banks they may need food safety training or if they are around children they need safeguarding training.

“This scheme will enable them to train up without spending money that could be serving the community.”

The funding for this has come from the Doncaster VCFS Fund in collaboration with the South Yorkshire Housing Association, The Social Isolation Alliance and Doncaster Council.

They are looking for groups who are non profit voluntary, community or faith organisations who are serving the communities of Doncaster or providing a Covid-19 response.
