NCVO statement on independence referendum

Commenting on the Scottish independence referendum result, Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:

‘Despite the no vote, we can expect to see the political settlement in the UK shift at a rapid pace. As greater devolution takes shape in Scotland, the demand for devolution throughout England will inevitably pick up. This is likely to affect how any number of state services are run and governed. We have seen change in this area recently, such as the introduction of clinical commissioning groups and police and crime commissioners. Charities will need to be prepared to work with more and more different and new structures in order to represent the causes they work for.’
