The impact of the cost-of-living crisis for charities is being felt on many fronts. Far more people are likely to rely on charity support, operational costs are increasing and donations are declining with household budgets squeezed.

With resources already stretched after two years supporting communities through the pandemic, this combination of rising costs, increased demand and income decline is concerning for us all.

The CAF Charity Resilience Index reports that:

  • 57% of charities have seen an increase in demand for their services over the past year
  • Only a third (31%) of charities are highly confident in their funding
  • More than half of charities are worried about their survival
  • Charities in the North of England are among the hardest hit with 67% reporting an increase in demand of their services

We're here to support you, so that you can continue to support those who need it most.
