The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the entire world. Many of us are separated from our friends and loved ones, and even simple joys like visiting relatives seem so far away.

It is inspiring to see ways in which the country has pulled together. From a huge outpouring of support for Captain Tom Moore to the countless volunteers who are helping the most vulnerable. It seems that, despite the distance, communities are closer than ever.

The React team are proud to assist families who require urgent assistance. Many are caring for children with complex needs and facing unimaginable pressure, particularly those who are vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. Our new application form can be filled out online or, for those who prefer an original application form, this can be scanned and forwarded by email or submitted by post. React is working hard to make the application process as easy as possible in these difficult times.

Thank you to all those who continue to support React’s work which allows us to provide an essential service to our families.

Stay strong, keep safe, and we will all get through this together.
