Vicky Browning welcomes new civil society minister

I would like to congratulate Mims Davies and welcome her to the role of civil society minister. It is great for the sector that we have a minister who has demonstrated her commitment and passion for charities by running the marathon in aid of a charity and by holding a trustee position in a small armed forces charity.

Like her predecessor, it seems she will not need to be convinced of the value of charities but, also like her predecessor Mims Davies has a large brief and it is important that she demonstrates her belief in the value of charities by prioritising the implementation of the civil society strategy. I look forward to working with her and the ACEVO network in order to achieve this.
