This month we’re looking at the subject everyone is talking about: the General Election and what this means for the UK charity sector at large.
With the election results today showing that the Conservative party has won a slim majority, the volunteering agenda looks like it could be the biggest positive opportunity. The manifesto commitment to allow three days paid leave a year from big companies and public bodies is fantastic - but the devil is in the detail of implementation and whether this needs further legislation remains to be seen. See the NCVO's Chief Executive Sir Stuart Etherington had to say on the matter here:Sir Stuart Etherington's address to the Sector and further opinions from sector leaders can be found here:Implications for the sector - NCVO blog.
