A tribute to Sir Bert Massie

The death of Sir Bert Massie is a great loss, personally and professionally, says Sir Stuart Etherington, the chief executive of NCVO.

Sir Stuart Etherington said:

It was with great sadness that I learned of Bert’s passing.

He was a doughty campaigner for disabled people and he also played a strong role as an erudite commentator for the wider voluntary sector. He was also a magnificent chairman of the former Disability Rights Commission.

More than that, he was just a lovely man.

As commissioner of the former Commission for the Compact before its abolition in 2011, he defended the work of voluntary organisations in a vigorous manner.

Bert also made a valuable contribution as a member of the former panel on the independence of the voluntary sector, and his thoughtful commentary on the future of civil society will be much missed.
