The recognition of the need to build the sector’s capacity, meet the full cost of services and strengthen the Compact between Government and the voluntarysector are particularly welcome. Whilst we are very disappointed that the Government has not been able to make headway on the issue of VAT, we look forward to working with them to make the maximum use of the new funds thatare available to remove other barriers to voluntary and community sector involvement.” “NCVO welcomes the Spending Review’s commitment to the specialist skills provided by the voluntary sector and we are hopeful that the ongoing discussions concerning a Voluntary Sector Skills Council in the near future.” “We look forward to the full report of the Treasury’s cross cutting review of the role of the voluntary sector in the delivery of public services following the summer recess, which will detail how many of the more detailedrecommendations will be implemented.” NCVO is disappointed at the lack of movement on VAT, but otherwise welcomes the Government’s Spending Review.Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive of The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) said: “NCVO welcomes the considerable commitment to the role of the voluntarysector in the delivery of public services that the Spending Review represents.
