Remember A Charity welcomes new Charities Minister

15 June 2017

Welcoming the appointment of Tracey Crouch, MP for Chatham and Aylesford, as Minister for Sports and Civil Society, Remember A Charity also highlights the key role of Government in shaping the future of legacy giving.

Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, says: “With parliamentary responsibility for civil society, Tracey Crouch MP has a key role in influencing the future of legacy giving and we’re excited about the opportunity of working with her.

In recent years, Government’s support has helped to quadruple the number of solicitors that proactively give clients the option of leaving a legacy in their Will, but the potential is even greater. We hope that Government continues to champion this vital form of giving.”

Crouch was elected in 2010 and was a member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee from 2012 to 2015. She was a member of the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission and the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee from 2013 to 2015. Crouch was appointed Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Sport, Tourism and Heritage on 12 May 2015.

The campaign hopes that Government will continue to support the annual Remember A Charity Week (11th-17th September 2017) and other campaign-led initiatives to help make legacy giving a social norm.
