Halt fundraising regulation plans until smaller charities consulted, urges NAVCA Tagged with: regulation small charities Plans to change fundraising regulation should be put on hold until smaller charities have been fully consulted, according to NAVCA, the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action.Neil Cleeveley, Chief Executive of the charity which is the national voice of local support and development organisations in England, said:“I am angry that the consequences of large charities behaving badly are borne by all charities rather than those responsible.”“Peter Lewis, of the Institute of Fundraising, made a crucial point in a blog this week that these plans must consider the ‘full range of fundraising organisations’. This is not currently the case. Smaller charities have been swept up without any consideration and NAVCA members, who work with smaller charities day in and day out, feel that at no point have their views been heard.”“As a result, we currently have plans that could do serious harm to many small and medium-sized local charities, many already under considerable pressure. These proposals should be halted until the implications for smaller charities are fully considered.”He was speaking ahead of tomorrow’s invitation-only meeting at NCVO at which the latest developments in implementing the self-regulation proposals in the Etherington Review will be presented and discussed.
