To search, use the "Search" box at the top righthand side of every page.
To get the most from our search try:
Precise search words
The more descriptive your search words are, the better your search results will be. For example, when searching for information about trustee recruitment, enter the search term "trustee recruitment", rather than "trustee" or "recruitment".
Check your spelling
The NCVO website cannot (yet) spot your typos for you.
Avoid common words
Commonly used words, such as "a", it", "and", "the", "by", "at", and "of", are ignored by the search tool.
Just the words
It is not necessary to phrase your search in the form of a question. For example, you do not need to enter "Where can I find information about revitalising English regions?". Instead, just enter "revitalising english regions".
Try using synonyms
If the search term you entered produces few results, try using a synonym or more common term that means the same. For example, instead of searching for "director development", try "trustee development".
