Current Fundraising overview – Northern Ireland Autumn 2020 – Covid-19 Impact

There is continued pressure on donors and institutional funders as demand on their resources in 2020 increases due to the pandemic. This is likely to accelerate into 2021 as local lockdowns take a heavy toll on the economy throughout Northern Ireland, as it is doing throughout the UK.

There will be an increase need to support charities helping older people deal with increased loneliness, fear and illness. Children that come from disadvantaged backgrounds are likely to have fallen behind in school work and they and their families will need additional support beyond what schools can offer. Many adults that have lost their jobs will require mental health support and career guidance. Needless to say it is always going to be the most vulnerable and those on the fringes of society that suffer the most at these difficult times. Our job is to raise additional income for charities so they can maintain and expand their vital services to those most in need.
