Labour Party’s Civil Society Strategy launched

The Labour Party has launched its Civil Society Strategy.

The new Strategy, launched by Shadow Minister for Civil Society, Steve Reed MP, promises a review of the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme to encourage more small-scale giving. CTG has been invited to meet members of Steve Reed’s team to discuss this and other tax issues currently affecting charities.

The report also confirms that the Labour Party will launch a review into social investment and particularly the role of Big Society Capital to ensure it is effectively supporting the sector, and review how it can do more to build social capital and incorporate models of community reinvestment in our poorest communities
