Ferg Slade I focus on the impact local and national government policy might have on Nottingham’s voluntary sector, which has more recently included cuts, Big Society and volunteering. All views are my own!

I am the Policy and Campaigns Officer for Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service. I focus on the impact local and national government policy might have on Nottingham’s voluntary sector, which has more recently included cuts, Big Society and volunteering. I also work to connect the voluntary sector with statutory and business partners. I grew up in Nottingham, and attended university at Lancaster University and Copenhagen University, and gained a Masters degree from Nottingham University.
