NCVO gives members chance to attend political conferences 01/05/09
 
The NCVO is giving its smaller members the chance to attend one of the three main political party conferences this year through its Party Conference Bursary Scheme.

Through its Party Conference Bursary Scheme, NCVO has reserved 21 exclusive conference places (seven places per conference) for its smaller members.

Two places at each conference will be reserved for local members in Bournemouth, Brighton and Manchester, giving charities the chance to have their voices heard and to raise the profile of their work with the main political parties.

NCVO will support successful organisations with a programme of meetings for the conferences, including a roundtable discussion with a senior MP or Minister. 

Winners will also receive a two-day pass to one of the party conferences and one night’s accommodation and travel.
 
Ann Blackmore, head of Policy, NCVO, said: “It’s important that all charities, large or small, are given the chance to meet with politicians to get their message across. The bursary scheme will give smaller charities the chance to have their say at one of the biggest political events of the year.”

To qualify for the scheme, organisations should have a turnover of less than £500,000, be a registered charity and an NCVO member.

Organisations wanting more information and an application form should contact partyconferences@ncvo-vol.org.uk or visit www.ncvo-vol.org.uk/partyconferencebursary. 

The closing date for applications is Friday 5 June 2009.
