From UK Fundraising
A survey of community charities has highlighted the need for remote employee volunteering to help support charities and people across UK.
Community investment and engagement platform Neighbourly, which connects businesses with local good causes, surveyed almost 1,000 front-line charity partners and found that over half (54%) need the help of remote volunteers to support both vulnerable people and the causes themselves in the coming weeks and months.
80%, including homeless charities, foodbanks and disability groups, said they have had to adapt their services to meet the increasing demand caused by the coronavirus crisis, while face to face volunteering in most cases has also had to cease due to social distancing.
