'Recently I’ve heard from a lot of people in the charitable sector about some of the challenges facing them as the nation battles the COVID-19 virus. I know a lot of charities, and your staff, are doing it tough right now as you continue to give a helping hand to those who need it most.
As a Government, we’ve announced some measures to assist the sector through this time, we will continue to look at how we can help the sector over the coming months, and I always welcome your feedback. Please reach out to me at [[email protected]] if you have any feedback or concerns about assistance available for charities at this time.'
