The government has announced it will suspend plans to introduce further limits on charities’ freedom of speech, known as an “anti-advocacy clause” which would have been inserted into grants from the public sector to charities.
We welcome the government’s decision to suspend the introduction of this clause and to listen to the concerns of organisations delivering services to the public sector about the impact it would have had.
However, this is just a temporary stay of execution and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss our concerns with the Cabinet Office.
The Cabinet Office has been invited to send a representative to the PRCA Charity & Not For Profit Group’s workshop on threats facing charities on 18 May.
