CAF Campaigns

A CHAMPION FOR CHARITIES

We work with government, political parties, other charities and their supporters to strengthen civil society and transform more lives and communities around the world.

Ideas to make giving count

We work with government and all those who are interested in charities to encourage giving, and help charities and social enterprises to flourish. We champion the contribution that charities, donors and volunteers make to society.  We are:

  • Informing and influencing the Government’s Civil Society Strategy
  • Ensuring charities have a voice in Brexit debates
  • Championing a positive regulatory, financial and political environment for charity
  • Working with other charities and their supporters to shape the future of giving
  • Ensuring that metro mayors and regional government promote giving

OUR FOCUS

Campaigning for social good

Campaigns to help people support the charities they care about.

Working with policymakers

We work with Government and opposition to ensure policy encourages giving, and allows charities and social enterprises to flourish.

Change for the better

We work to make the most of the contribution that charities, donors and volunteers make to society.
