Sector needs to 'stop whingeing'

Voluntary sector organisations must stop whingeing and present solutions, delegates will be told at the NCVO's conference on campaigning today.

Jonathan Ellis, former chief executive of campaigning charity the Empty Homes Agency and author of the NCVO book Campaigning for Success, said: "The sector is great at whingeing, but it's important to come up with a solution as well as pointing out the problem. It's also important to plan for success – even when you have reached your target, you shouldn't stop campaigning."

Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights charity Liberty, is the keynote speaker at the event, which is being held at the Barbican Centre in London.

Other speakers include Kevin Ashby, senior policy adviser at the Big Lottery Fund, and Brian Lamb, director of communications at the RNID.
