Press releases

NCVO has appointed Sarah Vibert as director of policy and volunteering, the charity umbrella body announced today. The role became vacant when the previous policy and volunteering director, Karl Wilding, was appointed chief executive.

  • NCVO’s Knowhow advice site is hub for range of new online resources
  • User testing ensures resources meet user needs, are accessible and easy to use
  • Developed as part of DCMS and National Lottery-funded Safeguarding Training Fund

Safeguarding should be a core value of every voluntary organisation and considered a personal responsibility of everyone working in them, NCVO today urged.

Charities need to prepare for no deal despite a new law that requires the prime minister to delay Brexit if an agreement hasn’t been reached, NCVO warned today as it released new guidance for charities to follow.

Charities are employing highly qualified staff but this may be at the cost of excluding people who face greater barriers to education and experience, new NCVO research suggests.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has announced that it will begin the search for a new chair of trustees later this year, with current chair Peter Kellner’s term coming to an end in November.

  • New tax rules and more Gift Aid awareness could bring charities 100s of millions/year
  • Universal donor database and encouraging Payroll Giving would boost funds further
  • No review of charity tax reliefs in 20 years despite digital revolution

Tax reliefs offered to UK charities urgently need an overhaul, according to a new report from a group led by the former chairman of the Inland Revenue (later HMRC).

Income growth slowed in the charity sector in 2016/17, according to the latest edition of the authoritative research on the sector’s finances, the NCVO UK Civil Society Almanac, published today.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has announced that its public policy and volunteering director Karl Wilding will be its next chief executive.

A new brand for NCVO’s quality mark for excellence in governance and operations will help charities demonstrate their high standards, NCVO said today.

The experiences of people who give their time through employer-organised or employer-supported activities, known as employer-supporter volunteering (ESV), are positive but lag behind those who arrange their own volunteering, a new report from NCVO finds.

The research shows that 39% of ESV volunteers reported being 'very satisfied' against 56% of non-ESV volunteers. It suggests that focusing on the quality of the experience of workplace volunteers tends to be less of a priority for the organisations involved than it would be for other forms of volunteering.
