Responding to Coronavirus

In the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic charities and communities groups across the country are pulling out all the stops to support some of our most vulnerable residents whilst also protecting their staff and making plans for business continuity. Here at VODA we are grappling with a number of possible scenarios including staff sickness, the need to cancel activities and the potential shut down of our premises.

To help our members make their own plans we thought it would be useful to share the following links. Please do get in touch if we can be of any further assistance during these difficult times:
