Rapid Recovery Network - can your organisation help?
22nd March 2021

Nesta is calling on organisations from across the UK to join the Rapid Recovery Challenge (RRC) Network. The network will support individuals and communities most affected by the economic impact of COVID-19.

The Rapid Recovery Challenge is a flagship response established by Nesta in response to COVID-19. The project is funding tools and services that help people 1) gain better access to jobs and 2) improve their financial position.

As part of this project, Nesta are building the Rapid Recovery Network - a network of organisations who can help share these tools with end users. The network will be made up of a wide range of frontline organisations, from banks to charities to supermarkets to local government and community organisations.


Who can join the Rapid Recovery Network?

If your organisation works with or has direct access to those individuals and communities most impacted economically by COVID-19, specifically: 

  • Those in (or who have recently lost) low paid work
  • Those in (or who have recently lost) insecure work
  • Younger people aged 18-24

Then the network needs your support to get these tools and services into their hands.


What does joining the Rapid Recovery Network look like in practice?

Getting the message out. Depending on your organisation that could look like:

  • sharing information about these tools and services in communications and marketing (e.g. newsletters);
  • making tools available to your end users at point of service, in your buildings or in conversations;
  • promoting the solutions at events or on social media


Being part of the Rpaid Recovery Network includes:

  • Access to innovative ready-to-use tools and services. Receive and invitation to RRC innovator demo day and launch event in May to hear from the innovators themselves on how to use the tools.
  • The opportunity to join an exciting group of organisations and alliance working to improve economic and job prospects of individuals and communities across the UK and appear as a Rapid Recovery Network partner on RRC website.
  • The opportunity to feed into Nesta's policy and recommendation report.
