GAVS was appalled by the brutal murder of a serving soldier carried out in Woolwich yesterday, 22nd May. We condemn responses to the event that seek to justify violence or intimidation towards any members of the local community.
GAVS will continue to act to support voluntary, community and faith organisations that work with all members of our community. GAVS welcomes your views on how we can work together to support vulnerable and disadvantaged communities from all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds, to improve their quality of life. Please e-mail Naomi Goldberg, GAVS Chief Executive, or call us on 020 8858 1363. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has published an update to its 2011 Counting the Cuts report, looking at the scale of cuts so far and those still to come. The report predicts continued challenges for the sector, with further cuts to government funding alongside a worsening outlook for other traditional sources of income. However the authors note the range of strategies that charities have pursued so far to survive and express cautious optimism for the longer term.
In partnership with Sheila McKechnie Foundation and featuring presentations and a Q&A session from local MP Nick Raynsford and Media Expert Jim Wintour,
this inspiring workshop will take you through the essentials of campaign strategy and planning and equip you with the skills you need to bring about change.
