Add event to calendar

NCVO is pleased to invite you to join a discussion with MEP candidates ahead of the European Parliament elections on 22nd May 2014.

This event will be an opportunity for you to engage in a debate with MEP candidates for London; to hear key views, recommendations and offers; and to discuss the changing impact of the EU on the voluntary sector.

NCVO has recently launched a Manifesto to set out our key recommendations and we believe that civil society has a pivotal role to play in addressing many of the challenges.

We want to see renewal of EU spending to effectively focus resources on inclusive growth; simplified EU regulation to ensure that EU rules benefit rather than hinder voluntary organisations; and reform of the EU’s institutions to improve dialogue and accountability.

Among the representatives of the panel are:

  • Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP for London (invited)
  • Seb Dance, Labour MEP Candidate for London
  • Jonathan Fryer, Liberal Democrat MEP Candidate for London
  • Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London
  • Marina Yannakoudakis, Conservative MEP for London
