ACEVO's comment on Brooks Newmark MP's appointment as the new Minister for Civil Society

Commenting on the appointment of Brooks Newmark as Minister for Civil Society, Sir Stephen Bubb, CEO of ACEVO said:

"I am pleased to welcome Brooks Newmark to the position of Parliamentary Secretary for the Cabinet Office – and Minister for Civil Society. He has a tough act to follow in Nick Hurd but he brings a sustained record of excellence in academia, business and government and this will stand him in good stead.

"He takes up the position at a time when charities and social enterprises are under sustained pressure to deliver more with fewer resources. Through his excellent work with charities in Braintree and as someone who has set up his own charity, he will be aware of many of the challenges posed by burdensome regulations and diminished sources of funding for the whole sector. ACEVO is ready to work with him to deliver the changes we need and to ensure that the power of social leaders is unleashed right across our country."
