Departing Nick Hurd urges government to help charities win public service contracts

Third Sector reports that Nick Hurd, the former Minister for Civil Society, has urged the Prime Minister to do more to enable charities and social enterprises to win public service delivery contracts.

Hurd resigned from his post on Monday evening after more than four years in the role.

In his resignation letter to David Cameron, Hurd said he was grateful to have been able to spend four years managing a brief he cared passionately about.

“It has been a privilege to work with our extraordinary voluntary sector through a very challenging time,” wrote Hurd. “They really do represent the best of British values.”
