NCVYS supports voluntary sector cuts website
NCVYS is pleased to support a new website launched this week to help to build a nationwide picture of how government spending cuts are taking their toll on the voluntary and community sector.
The site, www.voluntarysectorcuts.org.uk, gives voluntary and community organisations the opportunity to share their concerns about funding cuts and how they will impact on their ability to deliver vital services.
It is a joint project bringing together the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO), Volunteering England, the National Council of Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS), Compact Voice and regional voluntary networks from across the country.
All of the data captured will be public, so that groups can use the information in their campaigning and policy work, and citizens can see the real impact on voluntary organisations in their area.
Speaking about the launch of the site Faiza Chaudary, Director of Policy and Communications of NCVYS said: ‘We have been leading the way in monitoring the impact of cuts on our members and the young people that they work with. It is important that the sector continues to document these stories and NCVYS is committed to advocating on behalf of those most at risk from the cuts.’
The NCVYS policy team will continue its Funding Monitoring blog which can be found at www.ncvyspolicy.wordpress.com
