LawWorks Consultation response: Civil Society Strategy

The Department of Digital, Media, Culture and Sport have been consulting on a Civil Society Strategy. LawWorks has responded, welcoming the proposals, emphasising the particular role that legal pro bono.

Our work  provides us with an important insight into civil society and the charities sector, especially through our Not-For-Profits Programme. The programme brokers free legal advice for small not-for-profits working with individuals in need in England and Wales. As the programme only helps small not-for-profits, the vast majority have annual incomes below £500,000.

We hope that the Strategy can provide a basis for encouraging, rewarding and celebrating all forms of civic participation, including pro bono, and create a more favourable policy environment for civil society in all its forms.
