Our policy on the charity sector
Get in touch with our policy team to find out more information about our work and our policies.
Cancer Research UK relies on the generosity of the public to fund our life-saving research. It’s crucial that Government policies enable the charity sector to thrive.
We work to influence Government policy across a large number of areas including:
- Monitoring reforms to the regulation of charities; ensuring these are effective, promote best practice in the sector and enable charities to operate in an efficient, impactful way for supporters.
- Promoting Legacy and Payroll Giving so that more people can give directly through their payroll and the public are encouraged to remember a charity in their will.
- Reforming and promoting Gift Aid to ensure this important scheme continues to benefit charities in an increasingly digital age.
- Ensuring new legislation and Government policies, for example tax reform or lobbying rules, do not have unintended negative consequences for charities.
