  • Charity objects: understanding if you can help with coronavirus efforts
  • Government financial support for charities
  • Using reserves and restricted funds
  • Further advice on managing financial difficulties
  • AGMs and other meetings: postponing or cancelling meetings
  • Holding meetings online or by telephone
  • Reporting serious incidents to the Charity Commission
  • Keeping people safe
  • Working with a company or business to help with coronavirus
  • Charity statement of recommended practice (SORP) guidance
  • Information from other organisations

    Visit The Charity Commission  for full information. The Commission wants to reassure charities that their approach to regulation at this time will be as flexible and pragmatic as possible in the public interest, whilst helping trustees to think about the wider or longer impact of their decisions on their charity.  During the current crisis they will be prioritising registrations, permissions, reporting and other interactions related to coronavirus.
