Minister announces plan to help small charities win contracts

Rob Wilson, Minister for Civil Society, has announced a range of measures to help more small charities win contracts and has appointed former NCVO chair Sir Martyn Lewis to chair an implementation group.

Measures announced include developing a place-based Public Service Incubator to help small charities work with commissioners to identify and overcome barriers to getting commissioned, and developing a commissioning kitemark to highlight best practice.

The announcement said that Mr Lewis has been asked to chair a "voluntary sector-led implementation group on these proposals, to put them into practice".
