The Road Ahead 2024: Opportunities & challenges for the voluntary sector

11th March 2024

Last month, NCVO released its latest Road Ahead report which analyses major trends and issues for 2024 to help chart a path through the year. The headlines are:

This year is certain to have more than its fair share of political, economic, and social change. But NCVO confirm we’ve also entered a year of choices, challenges, and opportunities. NCVO believe the third sector will play a big role in this transformational year, particularly by raising our collective voice about the issues that matter and the realities facing our communities. This can be seen in the work NCVO are doing with their partners at ACEVO to develop a voluntary sector manifesto which will be presented to all political parties.

NCVO expect the resilience and innovation of the voluntary sector to shine through once again in 2024, but they also need to see a renewed partnership with government to tackle the issues facing our society. This requires greater collaboration in the voluntary sector to navigate the challenges ahead and create the most impact for the people and communities we support.
