Blog fee policy
We value guest bloggers who give up their time to contribute to the NPC blog. As a charity, we aim to minimise the cost of our blog. In order to help spread best practice, guidance and important updates across the sector, many of our guest bloggers provide blogs for free, as NPC staff members frequently do for blog pages run by others. We can however offer payment (which may also include a donation to charity or gift in kind) to guest bloggers where there is a barrier to participation. This may include front-line charity workers, charity users, small charities and those who are writing for us in a personal capacity.
We make this policy available to our guest bloggers when inviting them to write for us.
