The impact of spending cuts on the UK voluntary and community sector - 2013 update


 Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said the analysis suggests that charities delivering local public services are most vulnerable to forthcoming public spending reductions.


“Charities deliver high-quality, professional services,” he said. “When their expertise is lost it can be hard to regain. Of course, whichever charities lose funding, it is people and communities who lose services and support.


“It is of the utmost importance that local commissioners engage fully with charities in their area and think creatively about how to manage the issue of declining resources. The voluntary sector excels at innovation and adaptation, so local authorities must embrace its ideas in order to best serve their communities.”


The NCVO CEO added that while large new payment-by-results programmes offer some opportunities for the sector, it is important that these schemes are structured so that they suit charities of all sizes.
