02/03/05 - Minister receives hub ultimatum

The voluntary sector umbrella bodies leading the ChangeUp hubs have issued an ultimatum to charities minister Fiona Mactaggart that they will not establish the hubs unless funding is guaranteed beyond one year.

The NCVO, Charities Aid Foundation, Charities Evaluation Services, Volunteering England and the NACVS finally settled on the wording of the letter (Third Sector, 16 February) and sent it off last week.
