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

Working with policymakers
