Guidance to help with running your charity during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Understandably, charities are concerned about what to do during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, so we have set out our response to the most commonly asked questions.
We want to assure charities that our approach to regulation during this uncertain period will be as flexible and pragmatic as possible in the public interest, whilst helping trustees to be aware of and think about the wider or longer impact of their decisions on their charity.
Questions answered include:
How do I get support to pay my charity staff?
Can I use reserves and restricted funds to help my charity through the crisis?
Can I cancel or postpone my charity’s AGM or other key meetings?
Can I use video, teleconferencing and the internet in place of face-to-face meetings?
What do I need to report to the Charity Commission?
