Focusing on what we can do

Briefing 5 on the challenges faced by VCSE leaders during the Covid-19 crisis

May 2020

Ben Cairns, Emily Dyson, Liz Firth, Rebecca Moran


This fifth briefing reflects the experiences of 36 charities shared between 29 April and 11 May 2020, and our reflections on the questions and opportunities for funders that this raises.

As VCSE leaders entered weeks five and six of the Covid-19 lockdown, three main challenges remained at the front of their minds:

  1. How should they continue to adapt services and working practices in order to respond to changing/increasing beneficiary need?
  2. How can they plan at a time of huge uncertainty?
  3. How might they respond to reductions and pressures on organisational income?
