Our actions in responding to the coronavirus crisis have reaffirmed our passion, our commitment, and our collective strength to make a difference in our city, our region and especially in those communities where it matters most.

Covid-19 response and recovery
Our community is joining together to make every difference we can.
Small acts of care and kindness have inspired others to join forces. Our researchers are contributing to the international response to the pandemic. Our students are helping build online communities to support young people and schools. And our staff are coordinating donations and volunteers to offer vital support to NHS and local hospitals.
Across the University, we are mobilising our knowledge, our people and our resources to tackle the immediate and long-term challenges created by the coronavirus crisis.

There has never been a greater need for our work and we are very grateful for pro bono support from the Philanthropy Office at the University of York in preparing urgent grant applications to help maintain our vital services during this period of emergency. Covid-19 is the most intense challenge that many charities have ever faced.
