Understanding and engaging with the wider charity sector

The pandemic has presented a difficult time for the charity sector, with 93% of charities reporting they have been negatively impacted by Covid-19. But what have we learned from this challenging experience and how can we use our voice as a sector to make wider change for our communities?

We share insight into the issues shaping the charity landscape in 2021, with internationally-recognised research reports, and commentary from our Policy Team. We encourage you to join our campaigns to help create a better, stronger and more connected charity sector for all.
