Small charities, community groups, social enterprises and campaign groups contribute so much to making the UKs civil society what it is, but often their insights, expertise and experiences are not given sufficient attention in research.
The Law Family Commission on Civil Society is holding a series of online focus groups in early June exclusively for micro and small civil society organisations (any charity, community group, social enterprise, or campaign groups with an annual income of less than £500,000).
Objective of the focus group
The line between business and civil society is blurring, with businesses increasingly recognising the need to demonstrate their social value alongside their profitability. Civil society has knowledge of social issues and expertise in generating social value, which is a helpful resource for businesses.
We want civil society and businesses to work more effectively together, recognising the unique role and value each contributes to achieving the best possible outcomes for the UK.
Therefore, evidence is needed to understand more about how civil society and the private sector interact currently, where this relationship is working well and where there are opportunities to do better.
