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
There are many touchpoints between civil society and the state. These include finance, regulation, service delivery, influencing policy development and contributing to decision making. We want civil society and governments of all levels (central, national, and local) to work more effectively together.
Therefore, evidence is needed to understand exactly how micro and small civil society organisations and government interact currently, where this relationship is working well and where there are opportunities to do better. We also want to understand how they think civil society is best positioned to contribute to ‘levelling up’ the country.
