It is vitally important that we recognise all the work that volunteers do – they are often the “life-blood” in our organisations. In the same way as donors give of their money, volunteers give of their time and we want to thank them for all that they do.
NICVA members from across Northern Ireland got together on 28th September for the official launch of the new State of the Sector research and a special Ministerial address from Minister for Communities Paul Givan MLA.
In this Volunteers’ Week we want to celebrate the work of the people who volunteer in Big Lottery Funded Reaching Out Connecting Older People (ROCOP) programme. Volunteers are crucial to the delivery of many of these projects.
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.
State of the Sector VI provides high level statistics on the various types of resources available to the sector and the relationship between voluntary and community organisations, government, funders and the general public.
