Covid-19 Outbreak

BPRCVS is keeping you up-to-date during the Coronavirus crisis

During this unprecedented crisis Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale CVS is keeping a very close eye on what's happening.

Many VCFS groups and organisations will be adversely affected and may be forced into closures, cancellations and suspensions of their projects and services, activities, events, centres and groups. We've created a set of web pages designed to keep you up-to-date with all the changes occurring during this challenging time. Where relevant we will aim to provide updates every weekday. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter too using the handle @BPRCVS for the latest news, advice and information.

BPRCVS is following UK Government advice and is open for business as usual. We will monitor the situation closely and only intend to close our offices, projects and services in the event of the UK Government advising to do so, unless a significant number of staff and volunteers are affected by the viral outbreak and we are not in a position to deliver projects and services. However should we be advised to close by the UK Government, BPRCVS remains committed to working to improve the lives of people and their communities. We have developed a home working policy to ensure that as many of our projects and service remain in full operation. Where projects and services are affected clients will be contacted directly. 


Please stay safe and healthy, and follow government and NHS advice.
