The National Business Response Network was set up at the start of the pandemic to identify community needs and match them up with businesses who can help. This might be around food, clothing, laptops, virtual volunteers etc. Any registered organisation can make a request on the website here, and their local coordinator will try to match up their need with a business or other organisation who can help. Some requests get sorted within days and others can take quite a bit longer – it just depends if the right organisation to help is there at the right time. It’s always worth putting the need up and seeing if it can be met!
