NGO’s In For A Rough Couple Of Years, Poll Shows

Sun Oct 11 2020

A new poll by an International Development Group shows 48% NGO’s are at risk of ceasing operations

We all know it’s been a bad year, for all peoples and sectors. NGO’s in particular though have been stretched thin trying to help everyone during the coronavirus crisis.

Cuts to help from Central Gov, COVID, Brexit and a UK recession have all added up to create a perfect storm for the NonProfit sector.

The problems caused this year however could lead to many international development charities closing within the next two years.

 

International Development Network, Bond, has conducted a survey of 93 of its member organisations and come up with some stark results.

 

  • 48% of NGO’s are at risk of ceasing operations within the next two years. These are organisations that specialise in providing help to healthcare, water, sanitation, and food to marginalised communities.
  • Almost two thirds of medium and 29% of small NGO’s reported they might need to close before 2023.
  • Only 74 of larger NGO’s were confident they could continue operating past 2023
  • 65% of the organisations polled said they expected donations to fall during 2021/22
  • 25% of Non-profit’s surveyed were anticipating a drop in revenue of over 20%
  • Over half of respondees had had to make operational cuts due to a slash in help from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office cutting the overseas development aid budget.
  • 46% of organisations confirmed they’d either had to or would have to make job cuts

 

Although half of the NonProfits polled had made use of the governments Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, only 11% said they’d consider using its replacement once the current furlough scheme ended this month.

We would ask that the government set up a £10m relief fund to help small NGOs so that they can continue to support their local partners and the communities they work with. If we don’t, we risk losing both specialist organisations [and] charities that are the heart of local communities across the UK.
