Calling charities in need of space/ infrastructure

The team at East Finchley Covid 19 have been contacted by a charity based in Burnt Oak who are looking at linking with other charities to help young people aged 8 to 19 or 25 with SEN – see below.

“I have also pledged support for the wider community in as much as  supporting elderly residents and those ‘at risk’ by way of preparing food and/or food parcels within our 25,000 sq ft building. I have a catering kitchen, ample storage, external crates, a sports hall and my team, where they are fit and well are ready to go. I need to be linked in to other charities working with vulnerable groups to make this happen.”
