We understand you have an immediate need for funding to help you to meet the day-to-day demands of your charity and the communities you serve.
Nationwide, the demand for charity services has increased while income has declined sharply. With events cancelled and little or no face-to-face fundraising on high streets and elsewhere, the voluntary opportunities for people to give have all but dried up. Corporate partnerships have been hit while those businesses recalibrate their own plans for the future.
That’s why we’ve launched a range of resources to support you, assist fundraising and help you plan new ways of operating..
We’re a trusted insurance provider with extensive experience supporting customers in the UK charity sector. We understand the very challenging pressures you face.
- 43% of charities* are reporting increased demand for services while voluntary income is down by an average of 42% nationwide*.
- Charities nationwide are now facing an estimated funding shortfall of £12.4 billion **.
The charity fundraising hub includes easy-to-use tools and guidance that will support you as you plan your way out of the pandemic. We will be refreshing the hub regularly - we’re seeing a lot of innovation taking place and are keen to share best practice as it emerges. We believe the advice and ideas that you find here will help to build resilience for your charity in the future.
