CAF comments on the Spring Statement

23 March 2022

Responding to the Chancellor’s Spring Statement, Neil Heslop OBE, Chief Executive, said:

“We’re all acutely aware of the cost-of-living crisis and the strain it places on people everywhere. Charities are the first line of defence when families fall on hard times, and they stand ready to work with partners to meet the likely increase in demand on their services.

“It is positive that the Chancellor has announced some measures to help tackle this in today’s Spring Statement, but realistically more action is needed if we are to avoid the worst effects of this crisis.

“Given the role charities play in the UK’s response to poverty, deprivation and social crises, we encourage the Government to ensure the sector is part of the conversations about ways to help, particularly as part of the levelling up agenda.”
