Charity leaders to play role in sharing out Treasury fund

Five charity leaders have been appointed to head government task groups to determine how the Treasury's £125 million futurebuilders fund will be implemented.

Nicholas Young, chief executive of the British Red Cross, will look at scope of service delivery, Guide Dogs for the Blind's chief executive Geraldine Peacock will explore best use of the fund, while Turning Point's Victor Adebowale will look at how small and large organisations can work together.

Erica De'Ath, chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Child Care Organisations, will head the group working on good practice, and Clare Thomas, chief grants officer with Bridge House Estates, will lead on ideas for modernisation. (See page 13.)
