Within the Strategy, civil society refers to individuals and organisations when they act with the primary purpose of creating social value, independent of state control. By social value we mean enriched lives and a fairer society for all.

To help communities thrive, the government believes we need to look at five foundations of social value: people, places, the social sector, the private sector, and the public sector.

The report states "In the past we have too often thought of these foundations as separate from each other. But when they work together, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Government can help to bring together the resources, policies and people who, between them, can do so.

This Strategy is not intended as the final word or a fixed statement on the government’s work in relation to civil society. On the contrary, it is the beginning of an ambitious, evolving work programme to help build a strong society".

The Strategy sets out each of the 5 pillars detailing why they are important and what the government will do to, you can read the full report or download the exec summary below:
