Third Sector Podcast: The Levelling Up white paper

Rebecca and Alina speak to NPC's Leah Davis about what the recently-released report means for charities

This week, Third Sector's features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editorial assistant Alina Martin find out more about how charities can get involved in the government's levelling up agenda.

The levelling up agenda, which was a key part of the Conservative Party's 2019 manifesto, focuses on investing in communities across the country to address geographical inequality and improve opportunities nationwide.

Earlier this month, the government published its long-awaited white paper, laying out how it plans to carry this agenda forwards.

Rebecca speaks to Leah Davis, head of policy at the think tank NPC, about what's in the paper, and what opportunities exist for charities to get involved.

In this week's Valentine's Day-themed Good News Bulletin, Rebecca and Alina discuss a pair of otters rescued and set up together by the RSPCA, and a Bristol animal charity which came up with an unusual Valentine's fundraising idea.
