At NPC we do all our techie work because we want to help the voluntary sector use its resources in the very best way it can. Without understanding what you are trying to do you can't really achieve it; without measuring it to some degree, you can't get better; and without shared metrics you can't learn from anyone else.

This month's Budget brought welcome reward for Britain's "workers and savers". Toil, self-reliance and thrift have been buzzwords of this Government, and its measures to bring Britain out of economic woe. The mantra has been "reward the worthy" with the subtext: "nothing comes for free."

One of the great challenges within an ageing society is maintaining connectivity between the generations. Far too much of our society exists within a silo mentality, and that is also true when it comes to issues of family geography. With our global economy, many family members are often geographically isolated from each other - potentially connected only via digital communications.

I applaud Diaz for drawing a line in the sand and flipping the bird to anyone who expects her to cross it. Here's the thing though: we all need to draw that line in the sand. We all have a role to play in this anti-ageing crap and we need to stop buying into it. What do I mean? We need to stop whinging, whining and despairing about getting old. So it's at this point that I want to talk to you about my friend Emma.

I once read that as women advance in age, that they slowly disappear and back then, with my pert boobs, my dewy skin and my toned limbs, I thought "that will never happen to me". Well put those words on a plate and I'll have them for supper because as sure as my eggs are duff eggs, it's happening.

Age-old Secret Out of the Bag

When my maternal grandmother was my age, she kept quiet about it. No one, not even my mother, had a clue when she hit fifty, but just about everyone knows I am past fifty-one. Mama's age, however, was not to be discussed. Not ever! It just wasn't the done thing to ask a woman her age in her day, or for her to tell it. Such talk was cheap ... perhaps unspeakable.

It has long been a commonly held view that this generation, like the babyboomers before them, have never had it so good, with a higher take home salary and booming property market.
