BDCA's Response to the Coronavirus

Last updated 9 July 2020


At BDCA, we are doing all we can to protect our service users, volunteers, staff and the public. We continue to review our response as the situation develops and we receive new government advice.


We are rolling up our sleeves, making temporary changes to our service model so we can provide practical support to those in greatest need, and working closely with other community organisations to provide a co-ordinated response.

In this time of crisis, we know our neighbours need us more than ever, especially those who are at high risk. We are truly grateful for our staff, volunteers and partners who are making this response possible!
