Speaking on LIVE’s role in the crisis, Jon Collins outlined: ‘there has been a consensus around the LIVE Board that there is a solution which is to develop an industry led solution based on [a] partnership approach … we think we can create a vehicle to receive funds and then also make sure those funds are spent by the experts in the right places that will have the most impact’.
