Trust and confidence

Public trust and confidence is necessary for the sector to achieve its aims. However, over the last two years numerous studies have shown that public confidence in the sector has at worst diminished and at best remains volatile.

We will work across all policy strands to positively communicate the role and impact that charities have in public life. Public support will enable us to achieve more of our aims, especially around campaigning, levies and commissioning.

In February 2017 we launched Charity today 2017, which examined the benefit which charities delivered to communities. You can read more about this here, and listen to some of the media coverage we received here.
