CAF launches crisis helpline

Free confidential advice for charities in financial difficulty

The Charities Aid Foundation has launched a free crisis helpline for charities that are worried about their financial viability.

Charity leaders will be able to talk in confidence to CAF advisers and get advice on the steps they can take.

CAF will also refer charities to the sector's main umbrella bodies if they need further advice. The NCVO, Acevo, the Charity Finance Directors' Group and the Institute of Fundraising have all offered their support.

John Low, chief executive of CAF, said: "Our helpline gives charity leaders the chance to speak candidly about their situation to someone impartial and knowledgeable, who can help them contemplate their next steps. This helpline is available to any UK charity, regardless of size or affiliation."

The helpline number is 0800 980 2000.
