Charities tell new prime minister Boris Johnson what they want

Charities have urged the new prime minister, Boris Johnson, to put the sector at the heart of future policies to bring the country together. 

Sector leaders also called for clarity around plans for a Shared Prosperity Fund, highlighting the need to replace funding from the European Union, and emphasised that charities need a stable economy to thrive. 

Johnson beat Jeremy Hunt to become leader of the Conservative Party and will become prime minister tomorrow. 

As mayor of London he set up a charity, the Mayors Fund for London, but he was also a high-profile supporter of the unsuccessful Garden Bridge Trust initiative.
