Charities and inflation: What you need to know and do

Wednesday 18 May 2022

The UK is experiencing a cost of living crisis, and charities are not exempt. Inflation is already eroding the value of reserves and donations and will likely mean greater demand for your services amongst beneficiaries, as people are finding themselves under increased financial pressure.


This webinar will explore the implications of inflation for charities, and perhaps more importantly, what you can do to help mitigate the effects. This will include:


  • The most recent OBR/ Bank of England forecasts on inflation and what this might mean for your charities finances
  • How to structure finances/ negotiate contracts to mitigate the effects of inflation.
  • How to protect your reserves/portfolio
  • How rising costs might affect recruitment and retention of staff.

We will hear from a range of experts on the topic including: Jamie O’Halloran, Economist, Pro Bono Economics; Patrick Trueman, Portfolio Manager, James Hambro & Partners; a representative from recruitment consultants Altum Consulting; and a speaker from a prominent charity audit firm.

 We will also ensure there is plenty of time for questions so you can put your concerns for your charity to our expert panel.
