Funding

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • NCVO has welcomed today’s release of the Government’s supplementary guidance for Local Enterprise Partnerships, the 39 local bodies which will determine how key European funds are spent in England in the next European funding round, which runs from 2014-2020 (1).

  • Local charities must get a say in setting the priorities for local European funding, NCVO Chief Executive Sir Stuart Etherington said today, following the publication today of government guidance that sets out how priorities for European funding will be set locally (1). 

  • Commenting on the National Audit Office report on the government's use of payment-by-results schemes, Karl Wilding, policy director at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, which represents charities, said:

    'Our own research found charities thought payment-by-results contracts were often being used because they were political 'flavour of the month' rather than because they were appropriate for the service being delivered.

  • Public funding for charities could be 12% lower by 2017/18, according to new analysis from NCVO. The forecast suggests public funding for the sector could be £1.7bn lower in 2017/18 than it was in 2010/11, the latest year for which data is available.

  • The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and the Third Sector Research Centre (TSRC) are to create a data resource that will improve the evidence base for the voluntary sector, particularly in relation to its finances and resources over the past decade.

  • UK charities lost over £1.3billion in income from government as spending cuts kicked in, new figures published today show.

  • A key government mechanism to boost innovation in public services could be preventing rather than promoting new ways of working, a report today warns (1).

  • The way a key government mechanism to improve public services has been implemented has often been ‘seriously flawed’, a report today argues.

  • Monday 29 June

    New guidance on managing and governing fundraising is to be produced in the light of recent public concern about some charity fundraising tactics.
