UKCF launch manifesto

UK Community Foundations (UKCF), the national body of which the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland is a member, has launched its manifesto for this week’s General Election, putting communities at the centre of civil society.

The manifesto calls on the next Government in power to:

  • Strengthen local communities now and in the future by investing funds from dormant assets into Community Foundations
  • Commit to growing the level of local giving especially in areas of most need
  • Recognise that small, local charities rely on grants rather than social investment
