Please join us for the next meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on charities and volunteering.

Many charities are experiencing an increase in demand for their services at a time when incomes have been hit. This meeting will examine the impact of the pandemic on charities, their response to the crisis, and their role in the recovery. 

We will hear the latest research on how charities have been affected by the pandemic, and an update on how some charities are coping. Which sectors particularly need support? Should we try to target additional support or use mechanisms that help all charities? Does the understandable focus on frontline services mean other charities will be less well-placed to support the recovery? What are the characteristics of charities that are coping well, and what can we learn from this?

How to get involved

We very much welcome attendees from the voluntary sector.

Meetings usually take the form of presentations by speakers and then a Q&A with the floor. However, parliamentarians do have priority in asking questions.
