In the face of coronavirus, charities are #NeverMoreNeeded – for the essential support they provide in crisis and beyond, and how they shape our society for the better.

About the campaign

The government cannot afford to overlook or undervalue the not for profit sector at the moment.

As we navigate the worst impacts of the coronavirus outbreak, people across the country are relying on charities, for the essential support they provide and how they shape our society for the better.

And we’ll all continue to rely on charities’ expertise and experience in the recovery effort that lies ahead. 

A unique role

Charities and other not-for-profit organisations make our communities stronger. In the toughest times, we provide support no-one else can.

Our unique role and services are invaluable right now and will be essential when our country begins to heal and re-build as we recover from the initial coronavirus outbreak.

We have sent a joint letter on behalf of the VCSE sector in Milton Keynes to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rushi Sunak, to urge him to speed up and increase the provision for the charity sector and the many vulnerable people that we are all working to support.

Please read the letter below, share it with your local MP and ask them to lobby the Chancellor on our behalf.
