With social distancing in place, much of the sector’s income has been cut off overnight – fundraising events, conferences and training cancelled; charity shops, cafes and community venues closed. NCVO is working closely with government officials to develop a package of financial support aimed specifically at the sector – an emergency fund. They are also lobbying the government for greater clarity on how other support measures apply to charities.
Given the speed events are unfolding, there is a quick deadline of 23 March. We are grateful if you have capacity to complete this survey but understand if you need to focus elsewhere.
We expect that fundraising directors/finance directors (or those with the knowledge and overview of their charity’s finances) will predominantly be the ones filling this out. If you can find 15 minutes to complete it, every response will be helpful – especially any insight on financial impact.
