Never more needed
The government cannot afford to overlook or undervalue the not for profit sector at the moment.
As we navigate the worst impacts of the coronavirus outbreak, people across the country are relying on charities, for the essential support they provide and how they shape our society for the better.
And we’ll all continue to rely on charities’ expertise and experience in the recovery effort that lies ahead.
A unique role
Charities and other not-for-profit organisations make our communities stronger.
In the toughest times, we provide support no-one else can.
Our unique role and services are invaluable right now and will be essential when our country begins to heal and re-build as we recover from the initial coronavirus outbreak.
Meeting everyone’s needs and rights
Our response to the crisis must match our values as a country and our hopes for a more equal and compassionate society.
What we do and how we allocate resources will only be effective if we include the people, problems and places that are often overlooked.
The work we do – and our relationships with communities – shows the need to strive to meet everyone’s needs and rights, right now and during the recovery.
Looking to the future
As we move beyond the acute stage of the coronavirus crisis, we lift up our shared values and use them as a guide for what comes next.
Now is the time to choose to build a better future.
Every policy and funding decision should lead us to the future we want: a fair and just society where every one of us can thrive.
As we rebuild, let’s redesign our economy and social systems so that they work for all of us.
