East Suffolk's Community Response to Covid-19 

East Suffolk Council has created a new eBook to celebrate the people, organisations and businesses who have given up their time, knowledge and skills to help make a difference in their communities since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak. 

The eBook tells the stories of some of our volunteers and showcases the important work they have carried out – and continue to carry out – to support the most vulnerable in their communities. East Suffolk's Community Response to Covid-19 by thebridgemarketing.co - Issuu
