Defending the rights of voluntary organisations to campaign and safeguarding public trust and confidence in charities are among the priorities outlined in NCVO's new strategic plan. 

NCVO anticipates the environment for voluntary organisations changing rapidly over the next five years, with the strategy intended to reflect members’ needs in the future as well as currently. Voluntary organisations and volunteers will be playing a greater role in public services, while the ways that donors support charities is likely to evolve. Changing social attitudes will also bring higher expectations of transparency and accountability. NCVO's priorities for the next five years include:

  • demonstrating the value of voluntary organisations and volunteering
  • upholding the rights of charities to campaign
  • making the case for effective and intelligent funding and contracting arrangements
  • supporting local infrastructure, including volunteer centres
  • becoming the first port of call for new charities seeking support
  • using online platforms to bring individuals and organisations together to share expertise
  • showing the sector is accountable and transparent, and leading the way on open data.
