Community Response for Ukraine

East Cambs District Council, Ely Primary Care Network and Cambridgeshire County Council are seeking to find out about all of the great ways our community is coming together to respond to the Ukrainian crisis.

To do this, we have developed a short questionnaire and would like to ask if you could kindly take a few moments to tell us about any plans that your community or organisation has to support local efforts.
