CAF COMMENT: NEW MINISTER FOR SPORT & CIVIL SOCIETY

6 November 2018

There's a new Minister for Sport & Civil Society, Mims Davies.

Commenting, Sir John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation says:

“We are looking forward to working with Mims Davies MP as she takes on this important remit. Her breadth of parliamentary experience means she is well-placed to implement and build on the ambitious changes outlined in the Civil Society Strategy. Given her passion for charity fundraising, we believe she will be a great addition to the team at DCMS.  

"It is however disappointing that the Prime Minister did not take this opportunity to reinstate a stand-alone Minister for Civil Society. Given the challenges faced by the sector and the huge impact it has on people’s lives it would undoubtedly benefit from a dedicated Minister who can push forward the wide-ranging and ambitious plans set out earlier this year.

"We would like to thank Tracey Crouch for all the work she has done for the sector during her time in the role, and in particular her support for CAF’s Giving Tuesday campaign, which raises world record-breaking amounts of donations for charities in one day."
