These include new endowment match-funding for local grant-making foundations and more money for ‘community anchor organisations’.
The Charity Commission is also planning to revise its charity campaigning guidance, widely seen as a brake on charities advocating their causes effectively.
The review sets out the Government’s vision of its work with the sector over the next 10 years, and will feed into the forthcoming comprehensive spending review for 2008-11.
It was announced yesterday with a personal boost from the Prime Minister, who underlined his support for the sector’s role in society.
Phil Hope, minister for the third sector, said the review provided a plan to turn rhetoric into reality: “The emphasis on campaigning is a major step forward,” he said.
