What might be the longer term impact of COVID-19 on your charity?

At some point, life will resume a level of normality. When this happens, what do you think the impact of COVID-19 will be on your organisation?

This situation has had a hugely terrible impact on multiple organisations and groups across the third sector; It’s been warned that some charities in England could be facing imminent collapse due to the impact of coronavirus, with the sector estimated to lose £4 billion in funding.
We are trying to gain an understanding now of what the future may look like for the local charity and community sector so would really appreciate your feedback. Our hope is that we can use this intelligence for your benefit so please be clear in your responses.

We appreciate some of this is hypothetical/ has an element of the unknown, however we would like to gauge an understanding of your thoughts/ concerns. We’ve had a great response so far, but would love as many people’s thoughts as possible. Please fill in the survey by clicking here.

Also, be sure to let us know if your organisation needs support, whether it’s trustee recruitment and/or retainment, governance support, funding advice or other useful information, we’re here to help, so that we can all continue with the great work we’re doing as a sector to help the local community together.
