What is Community Action Response (CAR)?

CAR was formed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and continues to support UK communities, in particular the most vulnerable and isolated.

CAR is a group of over 35 community focussed charities campaigning for neighbours, community groups and individuals to do their bit to reduce the impact of social isolation, loneliness and localised inequality.

It is more important than ever that we unite and look out for each other. That’s why we’re joining forces with our friends and partners to call on everyone in our wider community to take positive and direct action to collaborate, support and care for each other.

Peter Stewart, Executive Director (Eden Project Communities)
