Launching the initiative, Claire Cullens, the charity's chief executive, said: “Charities and voluntary groups are the backbones of many local communities – and they’ve never been needed more than during the Covid-19 pandemic.  

“Over the last year, our charities and volunteers have stepped up to adapt and grow their vital services with incredible speed and commitment.
