Charity bodies make demands for sector funding ahead of general election

VCSE sector umbrella bodies have partnered on the release of a manifesto focused on strategic funding for charities ahead of the general election on December 12th.

ACEVO, the Charity Finance Group, Children England, the Institute of Fundraising, the Lloyds Bank Foundation, the Local Trust, NAVCA, NCVO and the Small Charities Coalition, have joined together to ask for four key demands to be met by political parties and the next government to:

  • increase funding for local authorities
  • establish a Resilient Communities Fund
  • confirm what arrangements will be made to replace EU funds, should Brexit take place; and
  • use dormant assets to create a Community Wealth Fund.
