The Trustees and team at Whirlwind are monitoring the current difficult situation in respect of covid-19 and are considering how to support and encourage our Partner Charities in this unprecedented situation.  We have been very grateful for the updates we have received and have been impressed with how many of our partners have adapted to these difficult times.

In March we took the very difficult decision to close our doors to new donations as a short term measure while we evaluated the impact of the crisis on our own financial position.

As restrictions in parts of the country are revised we want to be in a position to support our partner charities as they plan future delivery programmes for later this year, and into next year.  To this end we will have re-opened our application portal, and welcome conatct from our partner charities.

We hope that as many partner charities as possible will soon be able to operate as normal, or with modified services, to help the many vulnerable and disadvantaged people who have suffered so much this year.
