Role of Mayor and GLA in civic philanthropy?

At a time of political uncertainty around Brexit, the shrinking and changing role of the state in people’s lives and increasingly challenging social needs associated with an ageing population and widening inequality of wealth, expectations remain high for the Mayor of one of the richest cities in the world to take a lead in galvanising different sources of philanthropy.

The GLA is considering its role and will respond in October.
