Office for Civil Society faces 21 per cent budget cut

Cuts to Cabinet Office funding could hit the Office for Civil Society by around £11m a year, but the Charity Commission is still waiting to find out how much its budget will be cut, according to HM Treasury announcements.

HM Treasury has agreed deals on funding cuts with a number of government departments, including a 21 per cent cut at the Cabinet Office, the parent department of the Office for Civil Society.

These deals have been agreed in advance of the Autumn Statement and Spending Review, which will be given by George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 25 November.

If the Cabinet Office funding cut was applied evenly across the department it would cut the Office for Civil Society budget to £45m in the year ending March 2020, from a proposed £56m in the current year.
