Increased funding has featured heavily in a wish list contributed to by leaders from
within and around the charitable sector, including David Blunkett MP and Stephen Bubb.
Published by the Social Investment Business, the list included "a multi-million pound endowment fund from the Exchequer (which could be topped up from the lottery), for a massive extension of youth volunteering," requested by Blunkett, and a desire from acevo's Bubb to see the UK's charitable organisations receive the funding necessary to "deliver citizen focused and community driven public services."
Michael Toole of 3SC wants to see more collaborative working between charities in 2011. The benefits of charities working together, he said, would be a shared knowledge pool, more integrated services, increased scalability and cost reduction.
Other contributors to the Civil Society Wish List for 2011 included Alistair Wilson of the School for Social Entrepreneurs, Julie McEver of Local partnerships, the Brain and Spinal Injury Centre, Jonathan Lewis from the Social Investment Business, Matthew Taylor from the RSA and Henry Ngawoofah of the Grace Incorporation Faith Trust.
