Online Assistance To Beat Economic Blues

18/03/2009 Return to news archive

A new website has been launched to help third sector groups overcome the recession.

Umbrella organisation the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) has unveiled their Recession Support portal in a bid to provide groups with the practical advice and guidance they need to emerge through the economic downturn.

The website, which is free to use and also available to non-members of ACEVO, includes various guides written by a range of experts covering key topics such as finance, management and career development. It will also include the latest recession news, along with links to other useful organisations, sector events and training courses.

Stephen Bubb, chief executive of ACEVO, claimed it was vital for the sector to work together in such challenging economic times. He said: “We now need more than ever to collaborate as a sector and share knowledge” “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.”
