Outcomes and Next Steps

Fundraising continues to be a pressing issue for the voluntary sector. The Alliance, together with the Richmond Group of Charities, the Arthritis and Muskoskeletal Alliance and National Voices have been campaigning together in 2020 for improved support for the sector. In 2021, we will contiue to work with infrastructure bodies from across the voluntary sector to try and improve access to much needed funding.

Members can also share their experiences of fundraising on our ‘Neuro COVID-19 response forum’. Interested in becoming a member? Find out more here.
