Sir Stephen's response to the True and Fair Foundation's report, entitled 'A Hornets Nest'. This letter was first published in the Daily Telegraph.
I find bizarre the accusations made by the True and Fair Foundation about the use made by charities of their money.
Have people learnt nothing from the collapse of Kids Company? Spending every penny on the front line of a charity leads to collapse. Money spent on good governance and leadership, fundraising and campaigning is central to charities’ survival.
Rob Wilson, the minister for civil society, is also wrong to suggest that charities should “eke out every last penny for good causes”. He should be aware of the need to ensure the means of survival for charities, upon which not only the vulnerable but the Government depend.
