“It’s a worrying time. We're here to provide practical support and help fight your corner"
A vital new resource has been launched for Scotland’s charities to help them get through the toughest of times.
The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has created an online hub full of practical advice on how to deal with the escalating cost of living crisis.
It is estimated that rocketing energy prices and inflation will have a serious impact on how charities operate – and therefore the vital support they give to those hardest hit by the crisis.
Therefore, getting through this will be a crucial part of SCVO’s work.
The hub, which will be continually updated, contains free expert advice, news on webinars and training, the latest policy actions to combat the crisis and news from around the sector.
An SCVO spokesperson said: “As the cost of living crisis takes hold, people and communities need voluntary sector services more than ever. At the same time, voluntary organisations face spiralling costs, falling income and an uncertain future. We know that 61% of voluntary organisations are experiencing financial challenges while continuing to see an increased demand for services.
“It’s a worrying time. We're here to provide practical support and help fight your corner.”
TFN magazine’s September edition will feature a special focus on how charities are dealing with the crisis – if you have something to say on this or you want to tell us how your charity has been impacted, email email@example.com.
