BBC focus on Charities today

If you tune into a BBC station today, you might well hear a feature about charities. Our colleagues at Acevo have been working with the BBC to stimulate discussion of the charity sector. It’s an initiative I hope can help remind the public of all the good things that the sector does, and an opportunity for us to have a conversation about how charities really work.   If your local radio station is running anything on charities, feel free to phone in and join the discussion to talk about the work of your organisation. And you can see what’s happening on Twitter by looking out for #charitytoday.   You might also like to check out our new website, howcharitieswork.com, which helps explain how charities work for the general public. And if you have any feedback or ideas for the site, we’d love to hear them.   And we’re keen that the media know about all the work that charities do to make a difference in locally, nationally and internationally. If you’d like to help get your charity’s work in the news, get in touch with NCVO’s Constructive Voices programme.
