Sector bodies to work together on charities image

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) have agreed to work together to make the case for a strong charity sector.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the chairs, vice-chairs and chief executives of the two umbrella organisations. See NCVO press release, or Civil Society News for a fuller background.

The Understanding Charities Group, set up to create a more positive image of charities in the national press, welcomed the move. Also see ‘Key messages to improve understanding of charities‘ for the group’s latest moves “to tell a better story about charity” following recent negative media coverage.
