Acevo to publish 30 online articles to celebrate 30th anniversary

The 23 written articles and seven videos will be posted one a day during November

Acevo is to publish a collection of 30 articles and videos about issues affecting the voluntary sector as part of the charity leaders body’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

One new item will be published on the Acevo website every day during November, until 23 written articles and seven videos in total have been posted.

The articles include a piece from Richard Hawkes, chief executive of the British Asian Trust, who argues that the sector has only itself to blame for the way it has been portrayed in the media in recent years and says charities must be bolder at calling out bad practice.

Another article from Jen Shang of the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University considers who the philanthropists of tomorrow are, and a piece from Lynda Thomas, chief executive of Macmillan Cancer Support, discusses the future of fundraising.

The articles will be published on Acevo’s 30 Things to Think About website.

Vicky Browning, chief executive of Acevo, says in her introduction to the series that she is more interested in thinking about the future than dwelling on the past.

"What are the issues that are going to affect our sector over the next three decades, and how should we, as civil society leaders, respond to them?" she asks.

"Not all the pieces provide answers, but they do pose interesting questions. We hope they spark discussions and give food for thought and stimulus for action."

The membership body will also be tweeting about its anniversary using the hashtag #acevo30.
