We need the whole of government to think about civil society not as the cleaners that come in after the mess has been made, but as the central agency of our society – Danny Kruger MP

The team chew over Danny Kruger MP’s new report into the role of charities in the UK’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

They’re joined by the author himself, who explains his proposal for a “national volunteer reserve”; how he thinks government and civil society could work together more effectively; and why there’s a role for big tech in turning libraries into twenty-first century community hubs.

Good Charity, Bad Charity is presented by Keith Davis, Camilla McGibbon and David Prest. It is produced by Dan Hardoon at Whistledown and supported by the Centre for Charity Effectiveness.
