1 in 6 charities fear closure

One in six charities fear they will have to close in the new year because of public spending cuts and falling donations, according to a survey.

The Charities Aid Foundation poll of senior charity staff also found that a third of organisations may have to cut services or jobs.

Hannah Terry, the CAF's head of policy, told BBC News smaller charities would be particularly hit by falls in spending.

"We think that the fall in income will be affecting small and medium-sized charities the most, those that are in your local community doing vital things, providing social care, hospices, working with children and vulnerable young people, that they may be the ones that are really feeling the effects now," she told BBC News.
