On 3rd June 2020 the European Commission organised an online helpdesk on support to social services to respond to COVID-19 crisis. The helpdesk focused on bridging the gap between the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative (CRII & CRII+) and the funding needs of social services due to COVID-19. The outcome was clear: CRII can be used to fund the emergency funding needs of social services due to COVID-19, but access to these funds is needed now, in order to enable services to respond to the reality of COVID-19.
The EASPD's Communications Network represents a diverse group of communication professionals whose aim is to raise awareness on the importance of high-quality support services for people with disabilities. Join the discussion on 9th June at 9h30 about communication during the COVID-19 pandemic.
