  • Supporting our local communities through the coronavirus crisis

  • Supporting our local communities through the coronavirus crisis

Irish in Britain member organisations have been doing inspiring work to support local communities through the pandemic. From hosting online cultural events, to befriending and delivering food and medicines, they have been busy every day. 

Here we will be sharing some snapshots of their activities (see gallery below) and also sharing some of their Newsletters, many of which are now being printed and delivered to those who have no digital access.

A full list (plus a map view) of our member organisations is available here. If you are an Irish in Britain member and would like your activity to be included here please send photos/information to Judith comms@irishinbritain.org
