Local councillors and local partnerships

English umbrella body NCVO has produced a briefing note for the local elections this month. Local councillors are being encouraged to get behind charities and volunteers in their areas by following the recommendations – see NCVO press release or download (pdf, 60KB).

There is also an article on the value of local partnerships in promoting volunteering http://blogs.ncvo.org.uk/2014/05/01/the-value-of-local-partnerships-2/, which links to a one-pager on ‘Engaging with local councillors’.
