We are all thrilled to receive a grant of up to £7,500 from BLCF as part of the Bedfordshire Coronavirus Emergency Fund.
With this vital funding, we have been able to fully support our teams working at home during the crisis. We’ve improved our IT systems to better serve many more disabled people, carers and people with long term health conditions across Bedfordshire.
We have purchased new laptops for the team, achieved IT system improvements to allow for remote working and also implemented additional web content and technologies including website chat.
This funding was awarded by BLCF as part of the Bedfordshire Coronavirus Emergency Fund. @bedlutcf
