COVID-19 Events

Pink Ladies

We are launching a series of online policy breakfasts, covering a variety of topics and issues relevant to the current situation. We want to bring the sector together to share learning, insights and best practice.

Forthcoming events

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to change how we work. Many organisations have adjusted activities to be able to serve communities in the most effective way.

During these challenging times, The National Lottery Community Fund wants to assure charities and community organisations that we're here to support them.

The gatherings we're holding will be led by our experts in these fields and will provide a space for all of us to think about the smaller and larger questions that are facing the sector now and after the pandemic. This will ensure we're listening and learning from our communities.

We want to give organisations and groups the opportunity to talk to each other about relevant topics and to discuss the short- and long-term impact of COVID-19.

12 Aug, 12-1.30pm: The power of young people’s voices - International Day of Young People

This session will explore how civil society and local authorities can harness the power of young people’s voices and use their unique insights and experiences to inform how we work

Featuring members of The National Lottery Community Fund’s Young People in the Lead team, the session will be chaired by the Fund’s Head of Youth Voice Jo Rich and will explore some of the issues most important to young people.

We will be discussing how we can meet the needs and aspirations of young people as we rebuild after COVID-19, how the sector can ensure young people’s voices are heard, and the difference it can make when we harness the power of these voices.

COVID-19 has disrupted education, impacted young people’s mental health, and left many uncertain about their future. As we begin to rebuild it is vital their voices are heard, their insights inform our approach and we meet the expectations young people have for their future.

As part of the session you will be able to put your questions to the team and hear how you can involve young people more and get their insights and perspectives.

The Young People in the Lead team is made up of young people, aged 16 to 25, who all have a diverse range of lived experience, from homelessness to autism and represent every region in England. They work with the Fund to bring their perspective to how we work.
