Charities need to connect better with communities and should take a lead in addressing social divisions in the UK, a two-year inquiry into the future of civil society has concluded. The report of the Civil Society Futures inquiry says that the UK is facing democratic, digital, economic and environmental turmoil, and charities can help address key issues such as climate change, social divisions stemming from Brexit, racism, inequality and the automation of work. The report also suggests a "PACT" for civil society would help the charity sector successfully tackle the issues it faces and make sure it is well-prepared for the next decade. PACT stands for power, accountability, connection and trust, and the report outlines a number of ways how charities can improve in all four of these areas.
