Charities get people together to work on the issues they care about, they support their communities, and through volunteering they help people develop skills and connect them to new opportunities.

They published their manifesto setting out their ideas in five areas:

4. Make it easier for people to build their skills and get a good job
5. Give everybody a stake in post-Brexit Britain
