As a leading voice in the sector, we work to develop evidence-based policy positions and from these campaign to create real and positive change. We have a long history of successfully advocating on behalf charities.


CAF regularly responds to government and select committee consultations and calls for evidence. We advocate for a positive regulatory and tax environment for charities, and policies to encourage philanthropy and charitable giving, and support charity resilience.
