Locally based charities provide vital support and services for those in need in our communities. Government launched Local Charities Day in 2016 to recognise this contribution and grow support.

We understand that some have seen significant change in their funding environment in recent years. This is why government has supported the sector to become stronger and more sustainable. Most recently our Civil Society Strategy has reiterated our commitment to maintaining a thriving charity sector.
