“A lasting impact of Covid has been the number of people that want or need help, and so many organisations are prepared to give it. The problem is making sure they can find each other with all the “noise” about. This project will be so valuable to so many.”

"A huge challenge facing Sussex will be the large number of people who have or will lose their jobs as a result of the pandemic. We hope the RPD Foundation will be able to help a number of these find new outlets for their skills and The Boltini Trust is delighted to help them achieve this.”
