Citizens Advice developing individual giving after suffering drop in income

Citizens Advice is seeking to develop its individual giving after its income fell by 6% last year, its chief executive has revealed.  Clare Moriarty told Charity Finance magazine that Citizens Advice’s network of more than 250 local charities has to make “difficult decisions every day to stay afloat” while continuing to support beneficiaries.  Speaking to the magazine for its Charity Chief Executives Survey 2023, Moriarty said that the cost-of-living crisis presents “huge pressures” for local charities which are trying to meet increasing demand with resources that are tighter than ever.  The charity’s accounts for the year ending 31 March 2022 show that its total income fell from £162.7m to £153.6m.
