Since it launched in the middle of the pandemic, the #NeverMoreNeeded campaign has been championing the incredible work being undertaken by charities and voluntary organisations and pressing the case for greater support from government. If you are new to the overall campaign, you can find out more about it here.
On Wednesday 17 February, using the hashtags #RightNow and #NeverMoreNeeded, the campaign organisers want to encourage as many sector supporters, volunteers, trustees and workers as possible to post on social media what they or an organisation they support is doing to create positive change and tackle the issues facing our society. A few examples:
- #RightNow, we’re checking in on some older people isolating in our community
- #RightNow, I’m finding a place in a refuge for a woman fleeing abuse at home
- #RightNow, charities and their volunteers are restocking 1,500 food banks
- #RightNow, three acres of ancient woodland are being preserved for future generations
On the same day, the campaign will publish an open letter and an ad in one of the national newspapers, repeating the message and calling on the government to provide more support. If you are willing to sign it (subject to approving the final version), get in touch.
The organisers are working up a series of social media assets to help bring the campaign to life. Once those assets are ready, they will be available to download from the #NeverMoreNeeded website.
