Briefing on charities and civil society ahead of the General Election 2019.

Charities are integral to providing successful public services. They currently receive about £12bn a year to house the homeless, support families in need, help prisoners get their lives back on track, and much more. From the smallest community groups to the biggest brands, charities are central to our communities, working with people from all walks of life to support the most vulnerable, campaign for change, and build social capital and a cohesive society through local arts, sports and education projects.
