Brevia Not-For-Profit (NFP), a dedicated division of Brevia Consulting, has a strong track record of providing public affairs and public relations support to trade associations, professional bodies and charities.
The role of trade associations and professional bodies in UK regulatory delivery and policy making is changing. Associations are no longer only working in support of their members, but in many instances they now carry out key tasks on behalf of their memberships, especially in areas such as legislative compliance. Instead of the traditional command and control approach, the Government is looking to expand its work with industry bodies to develop novel regulatory systems where the work is shared between the public and private sectors. Our consultants can advise on driving legislative change to create these opportunities, the implementation of stakeholder engagement programmes and the demonstration of value to individual members. Following the reorganisation of UK Government departments in February 2023, the newly formed Department for Business and Trade plays a key role in supporting trade associations and professional bodies.
Following a number of recent controversies in charity management and fundraising practices, charities must seize the opportunity to differentiate themselves provided by the new regulatory framework. The role of the Charity Commission remains key in role in scrutinising the role of charities in England and Wales. In Scotland, the Scottish Charity Regulator acts as the independent regulator and registrar for Scotland’s charities.
The UK Government is looking to champion innovative practices which safeguard both supporters and service users, whilst ensuring that the UK’s charity sector retains its world-leading reputation. Brevia’s consultants work with charities to understand the political and regulatory environment in which they operate, develop messaging, and assist in targeting the right stakeholders.
On 13 December 2023, NHS England announced an updated Vaccination Strategy following calls from pharmaceutical companies and trade bodies for a national Vaccination Strategy to tackle issues of accessibility, misinformation, and distrust around vaccination.
The UK Government’s target of deploying 24GW of nuclear generation capacity by 2050 confirms the key role it sees nuclear playing in the UK’s net zero transition. However, it is nearly 30 years since the most recent plant, Sizewell B, came online and Hinkley Point C will not be generating electricity until at least 2029. A significant step change is required.
This week’s by-elections in Kingswood and Wellingborough have delivered blows to the Conservative Party, with Labour securing victories in both constituencies. The outcomes mark the end of another tumultuous week in British politics as voters went to the polls to fill the vacancies left by former Conservative MPs Chris Skidmore and Peter Bone.
