Press releases

Volunteering England and NCVO have today announced the names of the trustees from Volunteering England who will join the board of NCVO as part of the organisations’ proposed merger.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has announced the results of recent elections to its Trustee Board.

The new appointments include:

  • Ciarán Devane - Chief Executive of Macmillan Cancer Support;
  • Richard Leaman OBE, Chief Executive of Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

A new £6m programme to strengthen the organisations that underpin the voluntary sector’s work was launched formally yesterday (Monday 29 October) by NCVO Chief Executive Sir Stuart Etherington and Big Lottery Fund England Director, Dharmendra Kanani.

Charities are continuing to battle with financial pressures whilst still working to deliver services to the people who need them, according to a new survey of charity leaders.

Celebrated paralympian and inspirational campaigner, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE has been announced as the board’s choice for the next President of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

The Government’s Open Public Services agenda, announced last year, encourages the voluntary sector to bring innovation to local services, but there are significant barriers which hamper this reality according to a new report launched today.

Ten charities from across England will be competing to engage their communities and supporters in a new form of fundraising. The Crowdfunding Challenge, which runs until November this year, pits ten very different organisations against each other to learn, experiment and raise money from crowdfunding.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has commented today on the CBI’s Open Access report.

A free service which signposts charities to funding and finance opportunities has had its contract extended for a further 18 months.

Big Lottery Fund and NCVO have teamed up for a new £6 million initiative. The Assist programme will help voluntary sector support and development organisations adapt to the changing needs of the frontline.
