What is it?

On the 8th April, the Chancellor announced that frontline charities across the UK will receive a £750 million package of support to ensure they can continue their work during the coronavirus outbreak. Full details are here but in summary, this will include:

  • £360m direct from Government departments which will fund organisations such as:
    • Hospices
    • St John Ambulance
    • Victims’ charities, including domestic abuse
    • Vulnerable children charities
    • Citizens Advice services
  • £370 million for smaller charities, including through a grant to the National Lottery Community Fund. This will support those organisations that are supporting local communities during the outbreak, including those delivering food, essential medicines and providing financial advice
  • A commitment from the Government to match donations to the National Emergencies Trust as part of the BBC’s Big Night In fundraiser later this month, with a minimum pledge of £20 million
