Coronavirus (Covid-19) support

As Covid-19 continues spreading worldwide, we’re supporting Bond members to adapt their operations and keep their organisations safe. 

NGOs are facing unprecedented challenges in the UK and across the world. Our recent Covid-19 survey highlights that NGOs are under immense strain from international travel restrictions, keeping staff in the UK and overseas safe, and losing income from reduced fundraising. 

We’re responding to our members’ needs by mobilising the sector and providing the latest information and resources for enduring this crisis. 

Our support to the sector

We're helping organisations in these ways:  

  • We’re sharing knowledge, learning and resources on Covid-19 that relate to international development, peacebuilding and humanitarian response. On this page, you’ll find information and guidance to support your organisation’s operations, fundraising, programmes, staff and volunteers. You can navigate our guidance using the red menu to the right. 
  • We’re mobilising and convening members to share insights. Our 40 working groups are already providing advice and resources on specific areas of work. We’re also holding virtual meetings to gather your concerns and issues, so we can help strengthen organisations and advocate for the sector. Tell us about the challenges your organisation is facing using this feedback form and leave anonymous feedback on how we're supporting our members.
  • We’ll be holding webinars on a range of Covid-19 topics, including medical advice and health, business continuity, mental wellbeing, travel and foreign exchange. Sign up to our weekly newsletter to hear about these as they're announced. 
  • We’re taking our training online. Up to July, we’ll be delivering our courses online through our new learning platform. We’ve redesigned our face-to-face programmes to ensure we meet your learning needs through interactive live sessions, as well as individual and group activities. We have reduced the cost of courses by 20% until July. Check out our training
  • We’re connecting with UK government and other networks in the UK and internationally. We're working with the Department for International Development (DFID) to find solutions to the sector's most pressing issues.
