Sector call to remove barriers to charities’ involvement in public services

February 19, 2014 9:20 am

Third sector umbrella bodies have called on the government to invest more in training procurement officials to address the “significant barriers” to charities’ involvement in public services. In a joint submission to HM Treasury, the groups call for additional support to be made available to voluntary organisations that want to deliver public services. The submission also recommends expanding the reach of the Commissioning Academy, which trains public sector commissioners to commission services in a way that considers the needs of voluntary sector organisations. The submission has been signed by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, the Charity Finance Group, the Institute of Fundraising, Big Society Capital, the Association of Charitable Foundations and Voice4Change England.
