The Problem :
The Economic Downturn
The recession has taken its toll on most
organisations — charities, voluntary and
community organisations are no exception.
The UK Giving 2009 survey published recently by the
Charities Aid Foundation and National Council for
Voluntary Organisations found that total charitable
donations to the UK’s 170,000 or so charities have
dropped by about 11% in the past year to £9.9bn.
While this may not sound like much, the impact, in many
cases, has been severe. A large number of charities have had
to make job cuts and other cost savings at the exact time
- during a recession - when their services are in demand.
It is the fate of charities to be needed most when there
is least to give. This is emphasised by a survey carried out
by the Charity Commission who has reported that 4 in 10
charities or non-profit organisations have been hit by the
economic downturn and 58% of charitable organisations
claimed to have experienced a downturn in income.

have taken steps to combat the effects of the recession.
