5 THINGS WE'VE LEARNED FROM THE LEAKED LABOUR MANIFESTO

11 May 2017

Manifesto publications are always a key part of any election campaign, so when Labour’s draft was leaked today, it all became quite exciting. Our Campaigns Manager, Steve Clapperton has analysed the leaked manifesto, highlighting 5 key things for charities that we’ve learned in a blog that has been published on Civil Society. You can read this here.

Lots of charities will have lobbied the parties on issues related to their beneficiaries in anticipation of manifestos, including us at CAF who wrote to all parties calling on them to ensure that charities are at the heart of their election manifestos. This epitomises the crucial role that charities play in the public policy debate, and why we’re particularly pleased to see the Labour party’s commitment to repealing the Lobbying Act.

We’ll be analysing and responding to each party’s manifesto here, leaked or official. If you have any questions or want to tell us about your views on the election, get in touch with us at campaigns@cafonline.org, or on twitter @cafonline.
