Covid-19 Our response to the challenges ahead
We are facing challenging and uncertain times, and we share your concerns about the spread of COVID – 19. Like you we have friends and family among vulnerable groups.
Like you we are unsure what this means for the business community.
We are fully aware that during this difficult and extended period, charities will play an even more vital part in meeting the needs of the sick, elderly and vulnerable.
Please be assured that Charitable Giving has a robust Business Continuity Plan and is fully committed to processing and distributing the regular donations pledged by so many loyal donors. The cancellation of large Fundraising Events will undoubtedly impact significantly on charity income so digital donation methods are going to be key to their survival - and of course Payroll Giving donations in particular because they are regular, tax efficient for donors and admin efficient for beneficiaries.
Our team are fully briefed and taking appropriate precautions, our IT infrastructure and payment system is being tested and reviewed daily.
Our intention is to keep the office and our phone lines open but we have introduced safe and secure homeworking for key individuals as a precaution.
It is difficult to predict exactly how the situation will evolve or how long it will take to return to normality, but please be assured that we will be working round the clock to ensure that together we are making that all important difference!
