Cost of Giving Crisis

Support for charities

This isn’t just cost of living crisis. For charities who give so much, this is a Cost of Giving Crisis.

As costs continue to climb, funding falls, and demand for services increases, the voluntary sector is in crisis.

Our research has revealed the alarming impact of this ‘triple threat’ to our sector, with 1 in 5 charities telling us they could be forced to ‘disappear’ – at least until things improve.

The charity sector needs urgent support, or the people and communities we help will be put at risk.

At NCVO we’re working hard to raise awareness of this crisis and ensure charities get the action they need. We also have a range of services including online guidance, a helpdesk, webinars and training courses available for organisations.
