Today (June 25th) NCVO has joined a coalition of sector bodies calling on the government to temporarily boost the level of Gift Aid claimed on donations.
The voluntary sector is potentially facing the biggest financial crisis since World War II. As the full-scale of the economic impact of covid-19 hits home, headlines that many charities are facing substantial drops in income and making large scale redundancies are becoming commonplace.
New research from IoF, CFG, and NCVO, shows that voluntary organisations are facing a two-fold crisis. They are seeing their income fall sharply whilst demand for their services has increased significantly.
