Five tests set out for sector review

The NCVO has set out five "tests for success" to measure the impact of the Government's forthcoming third sector review.

The umbrella body has identified five crucial areas it wants to see addressed in the review, which is expected to be published before Parliament rises next Thursday.

It called on the Government to set up a skills council devoted to development of the sector's workforce and a select committee of MPs charged with overseeing government policy in the sector.

It said the review should ensure that a range of funding for the sector was available and that all policies and sources of cash were Compact-compliant.

It repeated calls for the Government to make cash available for an independent research centre focusing on the sector (Third Sector, 23 May). Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the NCVO, said the tests were "crucial to the review's success".
