Policy round-up: June 2024

This month’s policy roundup aims to give you a taste into what the policy and influencing team has been up to over the past month.

By Shareen Patel, policy and influencing officer at ACEVO.

Voluntary Sector Manifesto

Last year, ACEVO and NCVO started developing a manifesto aimed at reshaping the relationship between government and civil society based on better collaboration. We have now launched the Voluntary Sector Manifesto as part of our influencing efforts to highlight the value of civil society as a trusted partner. It is drawn from an in-depth process of consultation with ACEVO and NCVO members and outlines where we believe there to be the most opportunity to reset the relationship between government and our sector.

Party manifestos

The Conservative Party has now launched is 2024 Manifesto. The Labour Party is yet to publish their Manifesto. In due course, ACEVO will be publishing a member briefing providing a short analysis of what the manifestos mean for the charity sector.

Climate crisis member meeting

Our next online climate crisis member meeting is on Tuesday 23 July, 14:00-15:00. Our guest speaker is Nick Gardner, Head of Climate Action at The National Lottery Community Fund. Nick will share his experience of delivering the £100m Climate Action Fund and embedding climate and environmental sustainability into the central strategy for the Fund to 2030. He will share what the fund has been able to achieve so far and give some lessons from funded projects to date. He will also speak on the role of civil society in climate justice and his hopes for climate-focused action in the future. Book your place to attend.

The policy and influencing team is here to help! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at or with me directly at
