Free microsite covers finance, management and career development.

Chief executives body Acevo has launched a new website to help third sector organisations weather the recession.

The site, www.recessionsupport.org.uk  contains various guides and tips written by experts on finance, management and career development. It includes news on the recession, as well as links to relevant organisations, events and courses.

Stephen Bubb, chief executive of Acevo, said the site was not part of Acevo's main website because the umbrella body wanted to make it available to non-members too.

"We now need more than ever to collaborate as a sector and share knowledge," he said.

"We need to draw upon our peers' experiences so that all organisations have a better chance of surviving. This will give us a fitter third sector the other side of the recession."
