Charity Resource Hub – Cost of Living
Helping you continue to support your community through the cost-of-living crisis
We’ve gathered a wide range of experts to provide the resources you need to navigate the cost-of-living crisis and help our communities. From governance and planning to attracting new funding, we can help you gain insight and plan for uncertainty.
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.
Our research shows that:
- 82% of charity leaders are worried about the cost of utilities, and 80% about managing demand for higher wages
- 71% of charity leaders are concerned about managing an increase in demand for their services
- In September 2022, driven by the increasing cost of living, 6% of people reduced or stopped a regular payment to charity and 9% chose not to make a one-off donation – equivalent to around 4.9 million people.
We’re here to support you, so that you can continue to support those who need it most.
