Coronavirus: Support for Charities Announced


8 April

Today, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced £750m funding for charities to help them through the coronavirus.

Sunak says his plan will support “the unsung heroes” who are providing services “we all rely on”.

Ministers will offer £360m directly to charities providing essential services to vulnerable people – such as hospices – and £370m to small and medium-sized charities.

The government will also match pound-for-pound whatever the public donates to the BBC’s Big Night In charity appeal, starting with at least £20m to the National Emergencies Trust appeal.

More details about how the money can be accessed.
