Commissioner congratulates CVS Chief on new appointment

18th October 2017

Dame Vera Baird has welcomed news that Sally Young, Chief Executive of Newcastle Council for Voluntary Service has been appointed as Vice Chair of the NCVO board.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations is the national charity that champions the voluntary sector and volunteering. They do this by connecting, representing and supporting voluntary organisations nationally.

Sally, who has worked with charities for the past 30 years, will succeed Matt Hyde, the Chief Executive of the Scout Association, who comes to the end of his second, three-year term as a trustee in November. Sally is particularly interested in the value of small charities and local community groups, the importance of infrastructure organisations and working to tackle inequality and poverty. She will occupy the role for two years, as she is already in her second three-year term as a trustee.

Dame Vera said: “Sally has an unequivocal understanding of the sector and her experience will no doubt lend an influential voice for North East charities and organisations on the national agenda.”
