The Jewish Leadership Council are at the forefront of assisting communities across the whole country in effectively dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic.
Like all communities during this unprecedented time, we are constantly monitoring the situation to ensure the vulnerable in society are cared for. As is being reported in wider society, charities are facing the dual pressures of a major reduction in income whilst demand for their services has dramatically increased. This has led to the JLC undertaking a series of initiatives to support social care charities and those families struggling financially due to redundancy.
Since their election, the JLC and regional Representative Councils have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram. We are grateful that they have taken time to address concerns raised by our community and member organisations during this difficult period. We have been assured that our requests for action have been heard and will be relayed back to national government.

“We are grateful that Andy and Steve have once again made time to engage with the JLC and the Jewish community. Ever since they have assumed their roles, we have always enjoyed regular, open and constructive dialogue. Their concern for the wellbeing of the Jewish communities in Greater Manchester and Merseyside is hugely appreciated. The manner in which our concerns have been taken on board and immediately actioned will be of great comfort to the community.”

“Thank you to Marc and the JLC for ensuring that we are kept up to date on issues that are affecting the Jewish communities in Greater Manchester and Merseyside. We have always enjoyed engaging with the Jewish community and have seen first-hand the outstanding work undertaken by charities across both regions. We would like to thank the JLC and all of our local communities on their outstanding efforts across multiple sectors to ensure that people in need receive the necessary care and support. We have heard the concerns raised by the JLC and commit to raising them at the appropriate levels of government.”
