Charity News: Charities’ response to the war in Ukraine

No one could fail to be moved by events in Ukraine, and many trustees will be considering if the war impacts on their charity in any way and whether there is anything they can or should be doing in response.

Both CCEW and OSCR have now published guidance for charity trustees on the key areas that they should be considering in response to the war, including:

  • How best to support the Ukrainian people, noting considerations around charitable purposes and the need for suitable financial controls;
  • Reviewing IT and cyber security arrangements in line with recommendations recently made by the National Cyber Security Centre; and
  • Awareness of the sanctions regime if the charity has interaction with any Russian organisations or individuals.
