Most charities expect to see an increase in demand for their services over the next six months, according to a survey from Pro Bono Economics (PBE).

The latest survey found that 72% of respondents predict growing demand over the next six months, compared to pre-crisis expectations.

PBE is conducting a weekly tracker to find out how coronavirus is affecting charities, over the course of 2 and 3 June 2020, a total of 261 respondents filled in the survey. This included 94 small charities (annual income of less than £500,000), 132 medium sized charities (income between £500,000 and £10m), 32 large charities (income of £10m or more), and three other.

Of those who participated in the survey:

  • 90% said they expected Covid-19 to have a negative impact on their ability to meet their objectives over the next six months, with 41% saying they expected it to be a “large” negative impact.
  • One in ten, 9%, said they thought it would have a positive impact.
  • Nearly three quarters, 72%, said that they expected to see an increase in demand for their services over the next six months, compared to pre-crisis expectations.
