The cost of living: can charities be the only safety net?
June 6 @ 2:30 PM - 3:00 PM
The cost of living crisis is becoming a reality for nearly everyone that the charity sector supports. Many organisations are already gearing up to shift services, or expand their work to meet needs. However, with the rise in the use of food banks predating the pandemic, we have seen charities increasingly forced to take on a role that they would not have done in the past. This has come to a head in this crisis but was not entirely caused by it.
At this free, online event we will hear perspectives on the current crisis, what wider changes we need to see for charities to be able to continue to serve their communities, and what role charities have in bringing those changes about.
This event will explore:
- What role charities are currently playing in our society.
- What the deeper causes of this shift is.
- What role we think they should be playing
