Purpose - Discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the UK charity sector, outline possible opportunities for researchers in accounting/management as a consequence, and discuss possible strategies to respond to the pandemic.

Design/methodology/approach - Literature-based personal critical reflection.

Findings - COVID-19 has created a perfect storm for charities as major swathes of income have been lost, demands on services have increased and some are unable to operate at all because of imposed constraints.

Originality/value - Possible avenues for research, arising from the context of the crisis in the sector, are highlighted. Moreover, several useful strategies are emphasised to enable charities to navigate the crisis.
