sites (not necessarily good-looking, though):
National Council for Voluntary Organisations the leading membership
organisation for the UK voluntary sector; represents views of and
for the sector; publishes; researches; etc. Great site and very
portal for info about the voluntary & community sector; well-informed
and good links including warnings where linked sites are not-accessible
Association of Councils for Voluntary Service umbrella organisation
for Councils of Voluntary Service, which are themselves local umbrella
groups for the voluntary & community sector
portal for the voluntary & community sector as the law is
somewhat different in Scotland
volunteering and voluntary sector training organisation
England – National Centre for Volunteering. Co-ordinating
body to promote and encourage people to volunteer and to enable
organisations to make better use of volunteers
is the Year of the Volunteer, with different themes or focus
for each month
High-profile, heavily promoted by Govt. and much much more
trendy than Volunteering England, but not a supposed to be any rival.
Home Office - Active Communities Unit. One of the most important
developments for the voluntary sector was the setting-up of the
UK Government’s Active Communities Unit, which supports and
brings together the sector and has funded some high-profile work
Online News US portal and news site for the Nonprofit sector.
Publishes extensively. Very e-voluntary/e-community conscious –
probably the most ICT-literate site, if not in look then in content.
Looks like a Blog but it’s much more. Not just US-centric,
either. No links to other organisations, though, on the site itself.
