In our annual charity sector development report for 2022 we describe the macroeconomic headwinds buffeting these organisations: higher inflation, rising interest rates, climate and energy-related risks, and the increasing cost of living. Our charities team explains the key findings.
As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, there still remain uncertainties on the horizon in both economic outlook and global mobility, impacting demand for charities' services and the communities they serve.
You can find analysis and insight on how the sector can navigate these challenges in our report. One key conclusion is that managing governance and regulatory risks remains critical to operations.
In 2022 we have a special focus on the current developments in the area of climate change reporting and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters. Charities involved in environmental protection, animal welfare, citizenship or community development and many other causes will find themselves at the forefront of ESG's increasing importance.
You'll also find insight on inclusion and diversity – including guidance on how organisations can develop their provisions, based on our own practice.
