This year’s Local Charities Day will take place on 14 December and you can find out more from today’s blog by our new Minister for Sport and Civil Society Mims Davies.

Local Charities Day builds on the work of our recently published Civil Society Strategy, where we committed to enhancing relationships between businesses, charities and local areas, to help communities grow. Each year Local Charities Day shines a spotlight on the incredible work local charities do to build healthy and happy local communities. With your help we want every individual to do something special to celebrate #LocalCharitiesDay.
