By Samuel Kasumu, former no10 adviser and founder of Inclusive Boards 20 June 2022

For 20 years NPC has been helping philanthropists and charities to maximise social impact in the lives of the people they serve. To mark our 20th birthday, we’ve been talking to leading figures and people doing things differently to ask: Where next for social impact? In this interview, Samuel Kasumu and Delroy Corinaldi discuss how political charities should be. Opinions are the interviewee’s own.
