An interview with Matt Leach, chief executive of Capacitybuilders, is presented. On the report of the National Audit Office of Great Britain on capacity-building in the third sector, he hopes that it will be released in the first month at least. He says he is not averse to the idea on the planned merger of Capacitybuilders with government loan fund Futurebuilders and Big Lottery Fund. On Capacitybuilders, he thinks that it is a relatively new organization and is just starting to see its impact.
