In September 2020, we launched our “Covid and Communities” storytelling publication. It captured 25 diverse stories of great community spirit, and tremendous on-the-ground response, connection and partnership working that came to the fore within and across our communities to meet the needs of people experiencing the impacts of a global pandemic. They uncovered the challenges, fears and uncertainty that suddenly gripped, disrupted and endangered our everyday lives, our future, and the wellbeing of our communities.
The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland (CFNI), the Social Change Initiative (SCI) and the St. Stephen’s Green Trust (SSGT) wanted to engage further with the groups being supported through our peacebuilding and social justice programmes to listen to their lived experiences and learning as this crisis continues, and hear their perspectives on what this means for the longer-term recovery of communities as we seek to build back fairer.
