Simon Hebditch, chief executive of Capacitybuilders, told Third Sector the organisation needed to streamline the way ChangeUp support was provided. "We are not convinced that volunteering should not be in with another strategic theme," he said.
Volunteering groups have urged Capacitybuilders to rethink plans to amalgamate volunteering with the workforce national support service (Third Sector Online, 25 June).
Separately, Capacitybuilders has updated Destination 2014, the report outlining its strategy for ChangeUp. The revised version sets out plans for Capacitybuilders to use EU cash to support charity infrastructure.
Capacitybuilders also aims to take over the coordination of charity capacity building funds from "at least one other government department" and to help social enterprises for the first time (Third Sector Online, 3 July).
