Neil Heslop, chief executive of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), said “Charities are at the frontline of the cost-of-living crisis helping those most in need – providing warm places, food packages, mental health services, and support for the homeless. So it’s disappointing that the chancellor did not mention any support for charities.
Organisations are under severe financial strain, facing soaring energy bills, declining income as people cut back, but significantly rising demand for their services. Charities must be at the centre of any continued energy support from April and need to know where they stand.”
