The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has begun a consultation regarding proposed restructuring, with more than 40% of staff at risk of redundancy.
NCVO has been forced to act due to financial losses caused by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has had a detrimental effect its ability to raise revenue from venue hire, training and consultancy services.
The charity’s plans include reducing the size of its leadership team from three directors to two, while cutting its wider management team from 17 to nine.
It will also reduce the number of teams it operates from 13 to seven.
As part of its strategic review, the NCVO said it would create a new “people, governance and culture” team to help deliver its new approach and its wider equity, diversity and inclusion action plan.
In addition, the NCVO said it will continue investment in its digital and technology capacity to boost online services, networks and information for members.
The umbrella body says it anticipates a deficit totalling almost £4m over the next three financial years because of the pandemic.
