Rachael Maskell MP, Labour’s Shadow Civil Society Minister, commenting on reports the Government has no plans for more emergency funding for charities, said:
“The Government has turned its back on thousands of charities who have stepped up to play a pivotal role throughout this pandemic. With fundraising and trading stopped, organisations have had to sell their assets, use up their reserves and make staff redundant.
“We believe charities and voluntary organisations have a leading role in supporting people right now and in the recovery of communities across the country. Instead, they are being forced to make significant cuts to their support and services.”
