FRA highlights inspiring civil society support activities during COVID-19

Many people in Europe have been strongly affected by COVID-19 and the measures in place to stop its spread.

Once again civil society organisations are playing a key role providing concrete support, especially to vulnerable groups which are at risk of being disproportionately affected in the current crisis.

FRA is promoting examples of how its civil society partners give essential support to at risk communities. Examples include support given to people in institutions, older people, children of disadvantaged minority groups, and many more.

They all highlight the critically important role of civil society in the current times. FRA’s Fundamental Rights Platform organisations are invited to share with concrete examples of activities they are undertaking to support communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
