DCMS civil society adviser moves to Number 10

01 Aug 2019 News

Danny Kruger

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s expert adviser on charities has a new job at Number 10 working for the prime minister, Boris Johnson.

Danny Kruger, a charity founder and former speechwriter for David Cameron, was appointed last year by DCMS primarily to work on the Civil Society Strategy.

Since the strategy’s publication last August, which Kruger described as a “more practical and muscular” version of Cameron’s Big Society, he has led DCMS’s project on replacing EU funding via the Shared Prosperity Fund.

This week he left the department and was appointed by the new prime minister Johnson as his political secretary.

His Twitter biography now reads: “Political secretary to the PM.” He has also liked a Tweet congratulating him on the new role.

Kruger founded and ran the rehabilitation charity, Only Connect, which merged with Catch22 in 2015. He also founded and chaired West London Zone, a programme working with at-risk children and young people. He received an MBE in the Queen’s 2017 birthday honours.
