Two thirds of our network say people are managing tighter household budgets and almost half are supporting those on furlough or newly unemployed. Financial uncertainty is affecting people, charities and businesses. 40% of our charity partners have not been eligible for government support schemes. Over 60% saw their income decrease, as the same saw demand for their services increase. Between March and August, we saved our network on average almost £3,000 each on essential supplies.
