For much of 2015, it was a year to forget for the sector. While small charities received a lot of praise, some larger household name charities came under fire for fundraising malpractice and negligent governance. 

But as ever it's not all doom and gloom: volunteering has gone from strength to strength - corporate volunteering quietly being on the rise with more attention drawn to the economic benefits it brings to the nation, the call for more young trustees has had a successful response from the sector having being galvanised by some fantastic campaigning and the Etherington Review gave rise to some systemically important changes such as the new Fundraising Regulator. 

As Aimee Meade summises, "2016 will be a year of change for the voluntary  sector.however, the next 12 months will also see thousands of volunteers  give up their time, the public donate millions of pounds, inspirational stories from beneficiaries around the world and  thousands of charity staff dedicate their lives to make the world a  better place."
