What the NCVO manifesto means for you

With a year to go until the next General Election, NCVO has published our manifesto, A bigger difference: Realising the potential of voluntary organisations and volunteers (PDF, 1.4MB).

We will be working over the coming months to encourage policymakers across all parties to take up these recommendations in their manifestos for 2015.

The NCVO manifesto looks at challenges and opportunities for the sector as a whole, but it is intended to give our members a framework to raise local issues with their candidates.

We have produced a guide to help members contact their local MP and candidates (PDF, 60KB) to talk about their organisation and the work you do, in relation to the policy recommendations in the manifesto.

Parliament will be in recess for the majority of time between now and the autumn party conferences, when new policies are likely to be announced. This gives our members a great opportunity to reach out to their local candidates on the policies that matter most to them.

Evolve 2014

If you want to hear more about what NCVO, others in the sector, and the political parties have planned for the General Election, come to Evolve, the annual event for the voluntary sector.

You’ll be in good company. Nick Hurd, Minister for Civil Society, Lisa Nandy, Shadow Minister for Civil Society, and Hilary Benn, Shadow Secretary for Communities and Local Government will all be there.
