Bridges for Communities has remained up and running during the Covid-19 pandemic, acting within the Government guidelines.

Most of our programmes have been able to go online / over the phone, including b.friend, RefuLingua and Middle East b.friend. Volunteers and staff are continuing to provide support to those who are isolated, and some new initiatives have begun in response to the crisis and to the Black Lives Matter movement including a new Walk With Me project, Face Masks produced by our Craft Collective, and a potential schools linking project. Please see below for more details!
