Tracey Crouch, the Minister for Sport and Civil Society, has remained in post after this week’s government reshuffle.

The Conservative MP for Chatham and Aylesford, who has held the combined post since June last year, tweeted yesterday that she was "delighted" to continue in the role after Prime Minister Theresa May’s rejig.

Crouch, who has been an MP since 2010, announced in November that she was developing a new voluntary sector strategy to "reaffirm the value that government places on civil society". A consultation on the new strategy is due to take place in the next few weeks.

Matt Hancock, a former Cabinet Office minister with responsibility for the civil society brief, was appointed culture secretary in the reshuffle on Monday.

Hancock, who will have overall responsibility for the Office for Civil Society in his new role and was a digital minister in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport before his promotion, replaced Karen Bradley, who is the new Northern Ireland secretary.
