IoF submits response to Civil Society Strategy Consultation

21 May 2018

The IoF has submitted its response to the Civil Society new strategy consultation.

The consultation, which closed on 22 May 2018, sought opinions from the sector on how the government can work with and for civil society to tackle challenges and unlock opportunities to build a stronger society.

Since the announcement of the consultation, the IoF have been working with the sector and our members to encourage discussion and inform our response. Peter Lewis, Chief Executive to the IoF, outlined our priorities for a new civil society strategy in this blog.

Last week the IoF submitted a joint letter to Tracey Crouch, minister for civil society, signed by 14 sector leaders. The signatories, who submitted their own responses separately, asked for government to reform on two key areas; ongoing sector engagement and the strategic use of funds to deliver long-term value for the sector.

Today the IoF’s has submitted their response which can be read online now.
