About: The Initiative
We do not want to miss the chance to capture this moment in time through the eyes of the people who played such a valuable role in their community. We want to create a record of how to recognise and acknowledge the power of community and the value of volunteering.
By undertaking this initiative, we hope to:
- Attempt to capture this community legacy and to give volunteers the opportunity, once they emerge from their immediate crisis, to look back on what they achieved and the difference they made
- To introduce a new generation to the power of volunteering
- To generate local pride and celebrate the community
- To introduce an element of positivity to the Covid-19 discourse
- To offer young people an influential role in the Covid-19 response
