  • Martyn Lewis, chair of NCVO, said:

    NCVO’s board believe the fundraising self-regulation review is an important step forward for the sector and are keen to see its recommendations put into practice. To that end, we have asked NCVO staff to provide secretariat support to the fundraising preference service working group.

  • NCVO will review the Charity Commission’s governance structure and appointments process in order to find ways for the regulator to put questions about its political neutrality to rest for good, it was announced today.

  • Charities can expect to see little rise in income from donations or government, with earned income the best prospect for future growth, the charity sector’s representative body said today.

    Authoritative new data on the charity sector’s finances published today by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) shows that income from government is at best flat-lining for most of the sector, while the charity representative body forecasts a challenging public fundraising environment as a consequence of broader economic conditions.

  • Charities have been warned against inadvertently exploiting the precarious employment situation of young people by creating poor-quality 'intern' positions.

  • Commenting on the government’s response to reports by Lord Hodgson and the Public Accounts Select Committee on charity regulation, Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, said:

    ‘This response reflects broadly thoughtful and sensible positions from government on charity regulation.

  • Commenting for today’s Times story, Martyn Lewis, chair of NCVO, said:

    Britain’s best-loved charities are serious, professional organisations responsible for raising and prudently spending hundreds of millions a year on their good work. For an average household name charity, less than one per cent of its spending goes on senior staff pay, which is a sensible amount in order to ensure the charity is well-run and effective. Their executive salaries are typically much smaller than for comparable roles in other sectors.

  • Good morning and welcome, everybody. It’s good to see so many of you here today in what we believe is the biggest conference of voluntary organisations that we have ever held.

  • AC18SotSGood morning everyone, and welcome to NCVO’s Annual Conference.

    It is great to be here, to talk with you, and to hear about the fantastic things that you are all doing. The world around us is truly changed by charities.

    It is NCVO’s 100th birthday next year. It was round about this time, one hundred years ago, that discussions were taking place about how voluntary social work could be better organised.
