Construction Impact Framework supporting NHS Trusts, Key workers and communities throughout Covid-19 crisis.


A pro-social business working with public-sector organisations across the North West CIF sought a way to mobilise support from a ‘back office’ position that would impact the NHS and communities.

When the pandemic began to take a hold in the UK CIF immediately notified its NHS partners that services would be free of charge. Working with its supply partners CIF has deployed teams throughout the North West converting NHS properties into Covid19 wards and other medical facilities. Initial weeks of the pandemic also saw CIF sourcing PPE, linking public-sector partners with social enterprises to manufacture masks and securing free project management services for public-sector organisations.

Passionate about social impact CIF’s social investment model enabled the team to release funding to Centre 56. The funding will support the re-opening of the centre which is a specialist nursery supporting children from households with domestic violence

To support community businesses and thank our emergency services for being there in our time of need CIF also purchased ‘pies’ from award-winning community bakery ‘Homebaked’.  The famous ‘scouse pies’ are being delivered to Fire Stations across merseyside to thank fire service crews and fire advocates who are delivering medical prescriptions to shielding households.

Furthermore CIF has made cash donations to the Liverpool City Regions ‘LCR Cares’ fund and the Big Help Project in Knowsley.

Sara Lawton, CIF Director stated: “We looked at ways in which we could offer our support and took the decision to volunteer our resources, connect social enterprises and make donations that will help small charities and put food on families tables – we hope these small acts help our frontline hero’s and families across the Region.”
