Independence Panel visits Yorkshire

Involve invited some of the Panel on the Independence of the Voluntary Sector to meet local voluntary and community organisations to hear about their experience on Wednesday 24 April 2013 in Leeds. This was because our Quarterly Confidence Survey, and other surveys, indicate that voluntary organisations are finding it harder to have an independent voice - for a variety of reasons. This finding chimes with the latest Panel report "Independence Under Threat".

We wanted this experience to contribute to the Panel's thinking and we were pleased that Sir Roger Singelton the Panel's Chair and Caroline Slocock its Secretary came and met support and development organisations and front line groups. A note of the key points from the meeting can be downloaded here.

The Panel is keen to hear about local experience in the voluntary sector.
