NICVA is asking all trustees, committee members and directors of voluntary and community organisations to contribute to a new piece of research which is specifically examining governance in the Sector.
On the 18th May the NI Assembly will debate the recent cuts to the voluntary and community sector. We are encouraging all voluntary and community organisations to contact MLAs and ask them to support this important motion.
Over forty people attended NICVA’s Certificate Presentation on Friday, 24 April 2015, celebrating the work of more than a hundred participants who completed accredited qualifications over the last year.
The last few weeks has seen a range of departments deliver cuts to voluntary and community groups. Many of the cuts delivered are unfair and hugely disproportionate. Many staff in organisations have now been made compulsorily redundant.
A NICVA delegation has held productive meetings with the First and deputy First Ministers. Both Ministers agreed to urgent meetings at NICVA’s request and carried them out separately because of diary commitments.
NICVA and the Chief Executive's Forums conference on innovation in public service delivery saw speakers from the public, private and voluntary and community sectors address delegates on innovative processes and practices.
The only thing constant is change and this year with the new super councils forming, welfare reform, budget cuts, public procurement and charity registration, specific changes are presenting themselves to the sector.
