State of the Sector survey: what policy changes are on your wish list?

More lottery or government funding is top of the list for small charities

There were noticeable variations in what respondents from charities of different sizes wanted from government. The most popular change - more lottery or government funding for small charities - was backed by 20 per cent of respondents from organisations with annual incomes of less than £1m, 15 per cent of those with £5m a year and 2 per cent of those with more than £6m.

On reducing or removing VAT, demand was highest among respondents from medium-sized charities, at 11 per cent, compared with 7 per cent from small charities and 9 per cent from large ones. But the level of demand for Gift Aid reform was fairly consistent across respondents from all charities.
