When it has come to alleviating the impact of COVID-19 policies on inequalities, civil society organisations – NGOs, local governments, or citizens – have developed many initiatives, many “Better Stories”.

selected Better stories
In this section you will find more in-depth information on the most inspiring civil society initiatives, selected in each country by our national researchers.
COVID accommodation for homeless people
The City’s initiative was established partially in response to NGOs and other civil society actors’ lobbying efforts which advocated for securing several hotels/hostels for homeless people. The approach was inclusive, targeting the most vulnerable groups in the homeless community: people with disabilities, the elderly, and women were prioritized. The highest priority was given to people who showed symptoms of Covid-19 but had not yet been tested positive. The method of prioritizing clients placed in humanitarian hotels was inspired by a solution scheme used in London.
A support system for teachers (the SYPO project)
The SYPO Project helps educators to develop various personal and professional skills.
’TV teacher’, interactive school classes broadcast on TV
Czech Television created a series of live interactive school classes called TV Teacher [UčíTelka].
Crowdfunding to support single parents in Czech Republic
