  • NCVO reminds charities of the importance of historical archives

    The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) is calling for charities to protect their historical records, as part of a new project to archive charity sector documents.

    The five-year scheme, funded by the British Academy, will reach across the UK and seeks to digitally preserve key voluntary sector records, particularly those dating back to the creation of the modern welfare state in 1945. It aims to ensure that records relating to welfare reform, which transformed the relationship between charities and the state, are not lost.

  • Welfare cap will drive short-term decision-making and arbitrary benefit cuts, say charities

    A group of leading charities have warned the government that the new overall cap on welfare spending – the Annually Managed Expenditure cap – could drive short-term decisions about social security.

  • Welfare reform research will inform future changes

    NCVO is to undertake a major research project into the effects of recent welfare reforms on charities and their beneficiaries.

    The year-long project will consider the effectiveness of recent welfare reforms and identify the impacts they have had. The review will take evidence from charities and is intended to inform thinking on any future changes to welfare policy.

    The project launched today with a call for evidence from charities on the impact reforms have had on their beneficiaries and the ways in which charities have changed the support they provide to beneficiaries.
