Risky Business: Economic Impacts of the coronavirus crisis on different groups of workers

A new report by The Resolution Foundation explores the economic and health risks faced during the coronavirus crisis with differing experiences dependant on the type of job people have.

Key workers and workers in shutdown sectors are experiencing the most serious impacts of the crisis, the former putting their health at risk to keep services running and the latter facing economic instability due to furloughing or job loss.

The report further details how lower-paid, young people, and women within these job types are disproportionately affected by the crisis, concluding these findings urgently need to be recognised in the Governments response to the crisis.

Supporting the Third Sector through COVID-19

A series of documents and updates regarding the 2014 to 2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Programme and the response to COVID-19 can be accessed here.

As ever, our dedicated CSI Representatives are here to understand and unpack the issues that the third sector is facing within the current ESIF programme which are affecting their ability to use European funds effectively. 

So that we can raise these issues at government level on your behalf and pro-actively work for solutions, we’re asking Third Sector organisations to tell us their experiences using these funds, in light of the outbreak of COVID-19. Please contact us via info@civilsocietyinvolvement.com
