Support for Charities

I was happy to hear last week that the Chancellor has set out an extra £750 million coronavirus funding for frontline charities, this includes:

  • A £750 million fund for frontline charities across the UK – including hospices and those supporting domestic abuse victims
  • £360 million direct from government departments and £370 million for smaller charities, including through a grant to the National Lottery Community Fund
  • Government will match donations to the National Emergencies Trust as part of the BBC’s Big Night In fundraiser later this month – pledging a minimum of £20 million
