Social impact investors call on government to extend coronavirus loans for third sector

Charities and social enterprises are currently struggling to survive and some face serious cashflow problems. Without this extension, we could have potentially seen up to one in ten charities cease their operations before the end of the year.“In the short term, this extension will provide social enterprises and charities with additional time to secure much-needed finance. We welcome the fact that the Government is exploring a successor loan guarantee scheme. During the pandemic, we have seen how critically important these organisations are, supporting local communities and helping some of the most vulnerable. We look forward to working with Government to ensure that there is a long-term guarantee for the social sector.”  476 total views,  2 views today Big Society Capital and eight other social investors are calling on the government to extend the deadline for charities and social enterprises to submit applications to the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan (CBIL) Scheme to 4 November.The current deadline for CBIL Scheme applications is 30 September. However, from conversations between social lenders and borrowers in its pipeline, Big Society Capital understands many charities and social enterprises have delayed their applications while they apply to grant programmes first, such as the National Lottery Community Fund.The investors, which also include Social Investment Business, Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, Big Issue Invest, Charity Bank, Resonance, Social Investment Scotland, Social and Sustainable Capital, and Wales Council for Voluntary Action, argue that given their size, most can only undertake one application at a time. This means many will only find out the outcome of their grant application this month, by which time it will be too late to apply for CBILS.Many charities have sought additional funding, with half (50%) surveyed for a Pro Bono Economics tracker survey saying they have applied for emergency support from non-government sources and more than one-in-three (37%) applying for a share of the £900 million of support earmarked for the sector by the government. However, Pro Bono Economics points out that such sources are not available to all, and that one-in-ten (12%) of charities say they expect to cease operating altogether before the start of December.Stephen Muers, Interim CEO of Big Society Capital, said:“The uncertainty in the economy and amongst communities that gave rise to CBILS still remains. It’s a double hit for charities and social enterprises. Uniquely, they face not just dramatic falls in income but because of the pandemic they have also seen surges in demand for their services. Research among social enterprises has shown that a quarter have cash flow to allow operations for three months or less, with one in ten UK charities expecting to cease operating by December. These are dire times for social enterprises.“We are asking Government to extend the deadline for applications by just over a month so the third sector can benefit. For many, Covid-19 is an existential threat and CBILs would provide a much-needed lifeline.“We also need to look at providing a longer-term, dedicated guarantee, as our recent experience with CBILS has demonstrated the value this could create for the social sector and the public. We call on Government to explore this option with us.”The backgroundBig Society Capital provided the initial £25 million in funds for the Resilience and Recovery Loan Fund (RRLF), which is managed by Social Investment Business (SIB). Loans are backed by CBILS and issued through SIB working with partners (Big Issue Invest, CAF Venturesome, Charity Bank, Resonance, Social Investment Scotland, Social and Sustainable Capital and Wales Council for Voluntary Action) to make the Scheme more easily accessible to charities and social enterprises. RRLF can issue loans ranging from £100,000 to £1.5 million. To date, RRLF has approved funding of c.£10 million to 28 charities and social enterprises.  477 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

Chinese censors pursue cover-up efforts over Nanfang Zhoumo censorship

first_img March 12, 2021 Find out more to go further ChinaAsia – Pacific April 27, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders condemns the unrelenting efforts of the Chinese authorities to cover up their censorship of a New Year editorial in the reformist weekly Nanfang Zhoumo, and the ensuing protests over the past week.“By dictating a preconceived editorial line to news departments around the country, the Chinese authorities have shown their contempt for press freedom,” the organization said.“The propaganda department has clearly demonstrated that it is unwilling to allow dissident voices to be heard. The agreement reached by the newspaper’s editorial department and the Guangdong propaganda department is unsatisfactory since it includes no reparations or guarantees on the part of the authorities.”Nanfang Zhoumo editors, who had threatened to publish some 1,034 articles that had been totally or partially censored in the past year, agreed not to air publicly their grievances against Tuo Zhen, head of the Guangdong provincial propaganda department who was behind the censorship of the New Year editorial. In exchange, department officials were reported to have agreed not to make any changes to articles in the newspaper without prior notice. The latest issue of Nanfang Zhoumo appeared yesterday, although it was not available at some of its usual retail outlets Guangdong. The Chinese have spared no efforts since 3 January to calm the discontent aroused by the “New Year greetings incident”.On 8 January, the China Digital Times reported that the central propaganda department sent a note to news organizations reminding them that “Party control of the media is an unwavering basic principle” while absolving the Guangdong propaganda department of any responsibility for the “incident” exposed by Nanfang Zhoumo. The central propaganda department attributed the wave of protests to “hostile external forces involved in the development of the situation”.On the same day, an editorial in the pro-government Global Times was sent to news organizations with instructions to republish it. The Beijing News objected and expressed strong support for its Guangdong fellow newspaper. According to information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, the police were sent to the paper’s offices to put pressure on the journalists to obey.The newspaper’s staff tried to muster support by posting messages on Weibo, the Chinese micro blogging site, about the pressure put on the paper’s editors by the authorities, in particular by Liu Yunshan, a member of the permanent committee of the politburo since the 18th Communist Party Congress in November. The messages were quickly deleted.The Beijing News was finally forced to reprint the Global Times editorial after the official print works refused to publish it unless it was included. The paper’s editor, Dai Zigeng, submitted his resignation on Tuesday. It was rejected by the Beijing authorities, aware that such a move would only add to the popular discontent. For now, there are fears that Dai Zigeng may be subjected to reprisals on the part of the central propaganda department or may, at the very least, come under particular attention.According to estimates posted on Weibo, 29 activists who expressed their support for Nanfang Zhoumo were reported to have been questioned by the police and some were said to be still in custody.
