Key workers and charities
The Covid-19 pandemic has placed charities and not-for-profit organisations under a huge amount of financial pressure. Additionally, their role – in offering services, support and in some cases a lifeline, to the most vulnerable in our society – is in greater demand than ever before.
Charities’ concerns will be wide-ranging: from having insufficient keyworkers to provide services to vulnerable beneficiaries, to swiftly vanishing income streams (cancelled fundraising events and conferences; charity shops, cafes and community venues closed). Some charities will have now completely closed their doors and will be sitting tight, weathering the storm. For others, there will be a greater demand for them to keep going, yet little new income to support them with what lies ahead.
Our Charities Team are available to help you understand the issues you are facing at this time including funding, governance, continuity planning, employment law, contacts, property and insolvency.
