To ask Her Majesty's Government what role they envisage for the voluntary and community sector in the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
22 January 2020
The government values the role of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector in the UK; particularly its invaluable role in tackling some of the most entrenched societal challenges in the country.
The Office for Civil Society, within DCMS, is engaging with colleagues across government, in particular MHCLG and DWP, on the development of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Our ambition is to ensure that the sector does not face unnecessary barriers in accessing future funding.
Officials will continue to engage with the sector as this work progresses and will communicate relevant updates.
