Unite for our Society 

The Voluntary Sector
Together, Stronger

A strong voluntary sector is the foundation for a fair and flourishing society. 

Yet the very heart of the sector is currently at risk from Government cuts, short-term contracts and top-down commissioning structures.  The result is a deeply insecure funding environment which prevent voluntary sector organisations from best supporting their service users, employees, volunteers or society.

We’ve launched the campaign Unite for our Society to:

Recognise the contribution of the sector and those that work in it.;

Ensure a good working environment that supports the wellbeing of staff and volunteers through best practice policies and fair pay;

Strengthen the democratic voice of our Members in their workplaces;

Document the impact of cuts in government funding and the decline in other funding sources;

Maintain the independence of the sector so that delivery continues to be led by frontline staff,  volunteers and service users;

Identify and tackle common problems across the sector and share good practices;

Empower those working in the sector to become effective campaigners on behalf of their service users, colleagues, workplaces and society;  and

Provide leadership for the sector and set the agenda for decades to come.

Together, we can make the sector stronger - for the good of service users, staff and society.
