One in six UK charities questioned for a survey say they fear they may have to close in 2013 due to public spending cuts and falling donations, the Charities Aid Foundation has said.
The poll of 252 senior charity workers also found just under half of their organisations have been forced to dip into reserves to stay afloat.
Over a third have said they may be forced to cut services or jobs.
