Adapting how we work

Given the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of the charity’s work, VICTA is now working at reduced capacity. We are still active in the background moving things forward and planning future activities. We will do our best to keep you up to date with changes as and when they happen but please bear with us if things take a little longer than normal. This is especially true with respect to our grants programme.

If you need to contact us, please do so via email but remember we may not be able to get back to you straight away. If you don’t have the contact details of the member of staff you need, please email admin@victa.org.uk and we will direct your enquiry to the correct person.

For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience. We would also like to thank those of you who shared messages of support, please keep in touch over the next few weeks.

 

We have been busy finding ways to provide support and keep in touch, here are some resources to keep you informed and connected.
