Latest on the impact of Covid-19 on the voluntary sector

NCVO has published the first results of its study with Nottingham Trent University, the Covid-19 Voluntary Sector Impact Barometer. It finds: “From moving existing face-to-face services online, to funders supplying local charities with Zoom licenses, it’s clear that Covid-19 is accelerating a digital transformation in the voluntary sector, with 92% of organisations reporting an increase in delivering their services online.” However the pressures on the sector are clear:

  • 56% of organisations expect demand for services to surge over the next month as the impact of local lockdowns and rising unemployment filters down to communities
  • 80% predicted a negative impact on delivering their planned objectives over the next 12 months
  • 10% think it’s likely they’ll be forced to close
  • 60% said that Covid-19 related safety measures have increased their operating costs
