Extend FOI to the charitable sector - ensure volunteers have the same rights as employees

Extend FOI to the charitable sector - ensure volunteers have the same rights as employees

UK charities should be people's advocates not their enemies - if they need donations they should become much more transparent, accountable and honest about their operations to include providing a full record of companies they contract for various jobs.

Why is this important?

With loads of scandals appearing on a regular basis in the press, to include excessive executive pay re: Charity Boards, complaints from staff, volunteers and clients and the inadequate response of the Charity Commission the law needs to change.


Reasons for signing

  • Volenteers are the unsung heroes of the charity sector, and too many people take them for granted.
  • to end all scandals this must be done and seen to be done. Action and words.
