Two years on from the initial elections of Police and Crime Commissioners, Clinks has a short survey to find out what is working and what is acting as a barrier to the voluntary sector’s ability to shape and deliver local services that make communities safer places. Responses will help create a set of recommendations for key decision-makers.
WCVA’s annual Third Sector Awards Cymru honour the hard work and inspirational achievements of the sector in Wales. There are six categories, including Award for Good Governance, Health, Social Care and Wellbeing Award, Environmental Award.

In Partnership with:
Small Charities Coalition is running a programme of support to improve good governance in the boards of small London charities. The Building Resilience programme aims to build the skills and expertise of small charity boards through training and signposting to useful services and resources, and is available for free to Coalition members (and membership is free for small charities).
Charities are being reminded of the need to report serious incidents (RSIs) to the Charity Commission, the charity regulator in England and Wales. It believes under-reporting is “preventing the Commission from assessing the true scale and nature of risks facing charities and putting some charities and their work at risk where the trustees need assistance to handle them”.
The Social Investment Awards have been set up by the government to celebrate UK businesses and people who are solving social problems. One of the five categories is the Community Impact Award, recognising people who have enabled the most significant social impact in communities.
The Commission on Civil Society and Democratic Engagement is inviting all UK based campaigning organisations to submit evidence to its latest consultation, to help the Commission to understand what impact the new lobbying law is having. responses are wanted by 6pm, Friday 5th September.
