Charities urged to give regional branches a bigger say in decision-making

Research by the Institute for Public Policy Research has suggested that charities need to have a bigger say in policy at a regional level. The study showed that 80% of charity leaders thought decision-making at a regional level was important. However, 60% admitted that the voluntary sector's voice in policy in those areas was "not very well established". The research was unveiled at an Acevo (Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations) conference in York yesterday. Katie Schmuecker of IPPR North has said that, “Given the backdrop of the recession, it is more important than ever for economic development plans to support deprived areas as well as areas of opportunity. The voluntary and community sector has much to contribute in this respect."
