The Community Action Response (CAR) is led by a group of organisations from different sectors with the joint aim to encourage everyone to do what they can to support their communities, and particularly vulnerable and isolated people.
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.
During challenging times, let's come together to maintain community strength and support the people around us.

Neighbourly support can make a huge difference in a world fraught with challenge. Our relationships with people living nearby are the lifeblood of any healthy community and help us to stay happy and strong. Imminent difficulties may directly impact us and those living closest to us, but our neighbours, family and friends can help us overcome them. 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 in the coming weeks and months.
