Following the General Election, we promised you a list of who was who in the cabinet, so that you can see who is likely to have an impact on policies relating to the different areas of the voluntary sector in which we all work.

Under the MP, Boris Johnson, this is an abbreviated list is the main jobs in the Cabinet, and who holds them:

  • Home Secretary – Priti Patel
  • Foreign Secretary – Dominic Raab
  • International Trade Secretary, Women & Equalities – Liz Truss
  • Health & Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock
  • Environment – Theresa Villiers
  • Education – Gavin Williamson
  • Culture – Nicky Morgan

  • Minister for business, energy and industrial strategy – Kwasi Kwarteng
  • Cabinet office minister, Housing, communities and local government – Jake Berry

You can find more details of all of them on the Gov.uk page, but without contact details for them.  It is probably best to contact each person through their constituency website, if you need to raise awareness of something that comes under their portfolio.

There has been unconfirmed speculation that the PM is contemplating a bigger shake-up in February 2020, including changes to a number of departments, including the Department for Exiting the European Union, the Home Office and Department for International Development.
