20 years of NPC logo

By Angela Salt, Chief Executive of the Girl Guides 27 June 2022

For 20 years NPC has been helping philanthropists and charities to maximise social impact in the lives of the people they serve. To mark our 20th birthday, we’ve been talking to leading figures and people doing things differently to ask: Where next for social impact? In this interview, Angela Salt and Lucy de Groot discuss the future of volunteering. Opinions are the interviewee’s own.
