The core purpose of ACEVO is to develop leadership so whilst this may not get the press attention our policy work does it is still the core of our offering to members.

End of commercial!
The bursary scheme is a great idea. It is a shame that it is focused on umbrellas and not charities delivering frontline services. The need building and developing capability and capacity in leaders within these organisations, especially those of us who are small to medium sized, is great. This need is not always matched by the access to resource to support this necessary development.
Perhaps this could be the focus next time around.
Thanks Mark , I rather agree with you . But the way CB decided to orgsnise the capacity building programmes was through infrastructure bodies , as opposed to front line organisations . But acevo in its own programmes certainly does see that its direct leadrership support is a real contribution ot the front line , through empowered leaders .
