Small donations bill – clears final hurdle in House of Commons

Blog post by Charlotte Ravenscroft, Policy Manager at NCVO

Last night, the Small Donations Bill passed its final reading in the House of Commons. Thanks to everyone who has backed this campaign, we were able to secure Government amendments that will make the scheme significantly more accessible to charities. At least 16,000 charities will be better off as a result of these amendments. See our joint press release on the NCVO website for more details.

While not all of our concerns have been addressed, we are glad that the Government has listened to voices from across the sector and responded. As the Scheme gets up and running, we will continue to apply pressure to ensure it reaches as many charities as possible.
