Charities are not doing enough in response to attacks on chief executive pay, a Directory of Social Change conference heard yesterday.
The Charities Aid Foundation has warned that Big Society Bank loans could be too expensive for many charities and social enterprises.
London’s Air Ambulance, the charity that was embroiled in scandal in 2009 when it sacked its new chief executive after he raised concerns about its governance, has agreed a new seven-year financing deal for its helicopter.
The government's recent document on the Big Society Bank makes clear that it will not give out grants. Daniela Barone Soares, chief executive of Impetus Trust, argues that this will limit the Bank's capacity in the sector.
After losing a grant which provided 12 per cent of its income, June O'Sullivan provides an insight from the Paddington Farm Trust on how the current government regime is affecting its activities.
He was just so nice - an over used word, but I can only ever see Daniel with a smile on his face. Genuine, wickedly funny, intelligent, oozing with foresight and interest.
The government has appointed Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie and Conservative parliamentary candidate Shaun Bailey as ambassadors for the Big Society agenda.
Citizens Advice is hoping that most of the 900 jobs it was expecting to cut will be saved as a result of the government’s commitment to continue the Financial Inclusion Fund for another year.
The government is working with the Big Lottery Fund on interim arrangements that will enable the Big Society Bank to make investments as soon as money becomes available from dormant accounts in the summer, even though European Commission approval is still being sought for the funds to be used.
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has launched a seven-point action plan aimed at saving the Big Society concept in the face of "bad press".
