Everyone connected with NCVO is deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II.
We offer our sympathy, thoughts and best wishes to members of the Royal Family.
It is an immense source of pride for us as an organisation to have had Her Majesty The Queen serve as our Royal Patron since her ascension to the throne.
We fondly remember The Queen marking our centenary in 2019 by hosting a reception at Windsor Castle to recognise volunteers and voluntary action in the UK.
We celebrate Her Majesty’s service to UK civil society and are incredibly thankful for the support she offered to charities and volunteering throughout her lifetime.
Our thoughts are with all charities for whom The Queen served as Royal Patron, and with the countless organisations, communities, and individuals whose lives she touched.
The Queen was a truly global figure whose leadership will be sorely missed. She was an inspiration to many throughout her record breaking reign.
Her Majesty’s lifelong devotion to service and duty is a legacy which will continue to live on in the many millions of charities and volunteers dedicated to supporting communities across the UK and around the world.
