New research done by Social Ventures Australia and the Centre for Social Impact found out the non-profit sector has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The study found the sector was already struggling before the pandemic due to the severe bushfire season last summer, and the need to get through a lot of red tape to raise funds for their causes.

While the sector welcomed their inclusion in the JobKeeper program, charities are at risk by losing around 200,000 jobs if they are not supported by the government. The number is a result of a modelling in the research considering a 20% loss of revenue.

The charity sector wants the government to support the sector so it can stay alive and retain jobs.
