For those living at the margins COVID19 has made life even more challenging, so it’s not surprising that their plight has made headlines with many falling victim to the virus itself.
In his video contribution to The Four Pillars Forum, Alex Le Vey, Development Director at the Centre for Social Justice, outlines the vital work of the organisation and its response to the Covid-19 emergency – where the immediate decision was to scale-up for tackling the rocky road ahead.
Without taking the foot off the accelerator with existing projects, the CSJ ramped up its output to actively campaign for those suffering the immediacy of the pandemic, with domestic violence and school exclusions at the top of the agenda.
With hard evidence and help from their network of grassroots organisations, the CSJ has launched a landmark study titled ‘Bounce Back Britain’ which charts the way forward and why the Government must prioritise the poorest and most vulnerable in society as our economy emerges from a very deep recession brought on by Covid-19.
MSB is most grateful to Alex and his colleagues at CSJ for sharing their vital work with us in our Journal. We wish them every success and look forward to hearing more from them.
