National Council for Voluntary Organisations today launched
its new website and online communities at: www.ncvo-vol.org.uk.
NCVO’s new site will continue to provide a wealth
of information, advice and support for voluntary and community
organisations, with a fresh new design and improved navigation.
The major difference is that www.ncvo-vol.org.uk will allow
individuals to discuss, share and connect online with NCVO’s
7500 strong community of members.
New features include:
Questions & Answers: NCVO members can post their questions
and answer those of others, tapping into the collective
knowledge of our 7,500+ member organisations
Ask The Expert: NCVO members will be able to ask questions
on a specific topic throughout the week; an acknowledged
expert will then join the discussion on Friday, respond
to the questions, and continue the debate.
Blogs: NCVO staff will be blogging about their particular
areas of work and some of the issues they are facing, the
work they are doing and their experiences.
Networking Directory: on registering with the site, users
can opt to have their profile displayed in the networking
Search: a much-improved and enhanced search function that
will give users quicker and easier access to the information
they are looking for.
Emma Moore, head of information and publishing at NCVO,
said: “NCVO’s new website is a significant step
forward which enables our extensive and vibrant community
of members to meet and interact with each other, form new
networks, and share knowledge and good practice.
"NCVO’s role is to facilitate and support this
engagement. By harnessing the power of the web we are able
to better serve our members and strengthen the sector.”
NCVO’s website has been developed with SiftGroups
and is sponsored by Phoenix Software.
