The world is in a state of emergency. The outbreak of coronavirus is affecting both businesses and people from across the globe. Many people are suffering, not just physically due to ill health, but also economically and socially. Workers are struggling to make ends meet, small, local businesses are closing their doors, and social distancing and self-isolation means people aren’t able to visit vulnerable loved ones. The National Emergencies Trust (NET), are launching an appeal to raise funds for local charities and grassroots organisations that can provide vital support to people in the quickest way possible.
