Covid-19: Government support for charities

Inquiry

On 8 April 2020, HM Treasury announced £750 million of funding support to help frontline charities continue to operate during the coronavirus outbreak.

On 20 May, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and the Office for Civil Society announced that they were working across government to direct funds to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations supporting government’s coronavirus response through activities delivering charitable purposes. DCMS stressed the urgency to distribute funds quickly and prioritise those charities most in need.

The Committee will question senior officials at DCMS and the Charity Commission on how well the funding has been distributed and whether it is achieving its objectives.

If you have evidence on these questions please submit it here by 6:00 pm on Thursday 08 April 2021.
