Speaking at the launch of the Report from the Panel on the Independence of the Voluntary Sector, Sir Stuart Etherington said:
'This report is an important contribution to the very real debates about independence that our members face each day.
Whether we are debating the independence of the voluntary sector, the transparency agenda or our right to campaign - many of these challenges are intrinsically linked and it's clear that the time is right for a substantial commission to look at the future of the voluntary sector.
In the same way that the Deakin report was a creature of its time and its recommendations marked a turning point in the history of the voluntary sector, I hope this commission will enable the sector to shape its own future. Such an endeavour needs to be properly resourced and we are pleased to be offering £100k to support the work of this important commission.'
