ACO's reaction on government support for charities

“With our member charities supporting more individuals directly impacted by COVID-19 with financial and wellbeing support, and yet at the same time seeing their income significantly reduced as a direct result of the outbreak, the Government announcement of a £750m funding package for the charity sector is a welcome first step.

However, with an estimate that charities stand to lose around £4bn  over a twelve-week period and many may have to close their doors as a result, we will continue to work with other charity infrastructure bodies to push the government for the support needed so charities can continue to help those in need during this unprecedented time of crisis.

We look forward to hearing more details from the government on how charities can apply for this support.”
