CWI have convened a Covid-19 Non-Governmental Organisation Group comprising national organisations representing marginalised communities in an effort to build a collective response to share information on emerging issues which need to be raised at Government level. They have made a joint submission on behalf of the COVID-19 NGO Group - Marginalised Groups and Promoting Equality, Inclusion and Human Rights.
They have produced a planning framework, designed to assist organisations, in planning to protect the health and wellbeing and ensure the resilience of those who experience the highest degree of socio-economic marginalization and social exclusion during the Covid-19 pandemic.
