Charity Finance Group have identified that there will be charities who are on the brink of collapse (will become insolvent in next month), there are charities who can survive the crisis but will have to abandon their services and beneficiaries (in part or in full) to ensure that they can survive in the longer term, those who simply cannot play their part for lack of resource and those who can manage through this crisis and who will need support after the immediate crisis has passed.
We need to provide evidence of the size, scale and impact of our sector’s challenges.

"What you do today isn’t about saving your charity - it’s about saving the role charities play in society for the good of our beneficiaries.
