Liz calls on Chancellor to support charities and voluntary organisations

[17/03/2020 | No comment]

Charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises offer crucial support to many parts of our society every day, and in the coming months will be vital in tackling the spread and impact of coronavirus.

Many can help alleviate the pressure on our NHS and social care service and provide support to people suffering from the economic and social impact of the pandemic, as well as helping with everything from mental health impacts to support for vulnerable families.

But without an immediate injection of money, many charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises of all sizes will soon close. I know from conversations I have had with organisations in Leicester that funds are running out and there are many who need help now.

This is such an important issue. That’s why myself and 236 other MPs and Peers have signed a letter to the Chancellor calling for urgent action to be taken to support charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. You can read the full letter here.
