CFG responds to news of charity sector redundancies

Roberta Fusco, Director of Policy and Communications, comments on news of further redundancies in the charity sector.

"It is always very saddening to learn of redundancies and our thoughts are with those talented people whose jobs have been put at risk this week.

We stand in continued support of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising and NCVO, and all those organisations who work hard every day to champion the charity sector and deliver for their beneficiaries.

This crisis has not just impacted those involved in frontline service delivery but those, like us, representing and connecting communities.

We’ve said it before and we will say it again: Charities are now #NeverMoreNeeded. If civil society is to retain its talent and retain capacity to deliver for its beneficiaries, then we must now see real engagement and action from government.

Unfortunately, these redundancies in our sector aren’t the first and they won’t be the last. We invite government to work more closely with us, to explore the solutions we’ve already set out and help counter the enormous operational difficulties we now all face.

Only by working together can we achieve the government's aim to 'level up' and leverage the power of social change."

- Roberta Fusco, Director of Policy and Communications, CFG.
