What should charities be doing during the COVID-19 pandemic?

As the impact of the coronavirus continues to put a strain on many charities, the Charity Commission has been publishing and updating their advice regarding the pandemic in relation to:

  • changing objects to assist with the crisis;
  • using reserves and restricted funds;
  • cancellation or postponement of AGMs and other key meetings;
  • use of video, teleconferencing and the internet in place of face-to-face meetings;
  • paying staff;
  • serious incident reporting;
  • safeguarding; and
  • signposting.

Sarah Williams, Legal Director and Harriet Ainsworth, Associate in BDB Pitmans’ charities team, examine this guidance in their article for Charities Management.
