Permira Relief Fund

In April 2020, The Permira Foundation set up a Global Relief Fund in swift response to COVID-19.

Dedicated to supporting communities across the globe, we've helped local charities working with those particularly affected by the pandemic.

There has been a particular focus on engaging with charities beyond financial support, with many Permirans volunteering their own time and expertise to help those in need.
