The Cost of Giving Crisis – Exclusive Report from The Access Group offers Guidance for Charities, October 2022

Business management software provider The Access Group have released an exclusive report for charities offering guidance to help them continue their appeal and support amid the cost-of-living crisis.

In the wake of the pandemic is a cost-of-living crisis, with inflation in the UK expecting to hit 10%.

It’s challenging to see anything positive from this as the cost of fuel, the cost of food and domestic bills are increasing. As a result, people across the UK are looking for ways to save money.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) have already reported this year that over 90% of UK adults have experienced the rising costs.

This poses many difficult questions for charities, namely if donations would be one of the first expenses people cut, or what they can do to keep making a difference to those that need them?

Gathering insight from various sources both in and outside of the Charity Sector, The Access Group have released an exclusive report to help charities answer the above questions and more.

Intended to help inform charities on how best to react to the economic crisis, the report covers different themes such as popular methods to engage with donors and supporters.

They also explore other areas, such as how charities can cope with falling donations, as well as showing examples and solutions to lessen or reverse any economic losses.

MVA are also continuing their efforts to provide support and advice for the Charity Sector during these challenging times with their Reference Guide to Cost Cutting Measures, available in their Advice and Support pages.
