CFG statement: Liz Truss must work with sector to deliver bold plan

CFG shares its reaction to the announcement that Liz Truss is to become the UK's next prime minister.

Liz Truss has today been chosen by the Conservative Party to become the UK's next Prime Minister, following Boris Johnson's resignation in July.

Dr Clare Mills, Director of Policy and Communications, Charity Finance Group, comments:

“We welcome Liz Truss to her new role as Prime Minister. We look forward to continuing our work with government to champion the needs of CFG's members, the wider sector and, most importantly, those people our sector exists to serve.

“As part of the Civil Society Group, CFG will continue to work on the issues that impact those people. The top priority is to address the causes and impact of the rising cost of living which threatens the way of life and livelihoods of millions of people.

“We urge the new government to take immediate and effective action and use the ‘depth and breadth of talent’ that Ms Truss refers to, to bring fresh ideas to the most pressing issues of our time.

“As well as the serious impact of the changes in the cost of living, and the levelling up needed to address inequalities between and within our communities, we cannot ignore the climate emergency which is affecting the UK and many other parts of the world.

“The government must have a focused and creative approach to solving these most pressing issues, whilst providing urgent support to those who need it now. We invite Ms Truss to work closely with our sector, to help ensure her bold plan will solve these problems.”
