ACO Coronavirus Delivering Support

Today ACO has published a new guide to giving financial support to individuals during the COVID-19 crisis 'Coronavirus: delivering financial support.'

The guide helps organisations looking to set up new funds to provide financial grants to individuals adversely impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak by outlining the key considerations and minimum requirements for establishing grant-making operations to support individuals.

Donal Watkin, Chief Executive of ACO, commented: “As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have seen an increase in organisations wishing to set up new funds to help individuals requiring urgent financial support.

“While it is encouraging to see new funds being established, it is important they are managed effectively to operate efficiently and best meet the needs of individuals. As the UK’s umbrella body for benevolent funds, we have used our insight into working with benevolent charities during the current crisis to develop this guide to help new funds establish their grant-making operations.”
