COVID-19 Community Charity Appeal

The official COVID-19 Community Charity Appeal has been launched to support our community, and the many charities that provide vital care and services. Many organisations have seen a large and critical decline in income, and will need financial assistance to continue their work  «more»

The Great Community Challenge

The AGC has launched The Great Community Challenge to encourage Islanders to invent home-based activities to raise sponsorship for local charities.

Charities are under intense pressure with falling income during the COVID-19 crisis and Islanders can set up their sponsored Events using the AGC's online donations platform www.giving.gg, and then share their event using the power of social media.    <<more>>

#StayConnected

#StayConnected is an AGC/We All Matter, Eh? initiative to offer older and more vulnerable islanders access to tablets/iPad and WiFi devices for use during the COVID-19 crisis.  This promotes the advice from experts that, in these challenging times, it is important for family and friends to stay connected for everyone’s wellbeing.

The AGC has received significant support from the community and businesses for the #StayConnected initiative, including Sure Community Foundation, Galaxy CI, Resolution IT, and Deloitte, as well as private donations of second hand devices.

The AGC has also set up a funding page #StayConnected on www.giving.gg, its online donation platform to enable donations to be made to purchase useful items for this initiative.
