Making The Leap’s response to COVID-19

Making the Leap – Together

To all our Associates, Fellows, Supporters and Partners

Following the advice from Government we have decided to adjust our operations and to begin working remotely with immediate effect and until further notice. It is our priority to continue to provide services to young people, as the current situation leaves them even more unsure as to their futures, their need now is even greater.

Although our building will be closed, critical business activities will continue without disruption. We will leverage technology to provide virtual case management services and training to our Associates and Fellows, and we will continue to work with our partners. We will be speaking with our amazing volunteers, key funders, sponsors and donors and asking for their continued support, as we continue to raise the aspirations and increase the access to opportunities for the young people we exist to serve.

The leadership of Making The Leap will continue to monitor the developments and make decisions based upon up-to-date public health information and government directives. We will provide periodic updates to let you know how we are doing. This is an organisation that has risen to every challenge that we’ve faced and with the magnificent staff and trustee team here, I am confident that when this is over we will still be making the leap – together.

Peace and love
