Westminster Social Policy Forum

Next steps for charities - fundraising, governance and social investment

Wednesday, 8th February 2017

Glaziers Hall, 9 Montague Close, London SE1 9DD

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



Delegates at this seminar will consider the future for the third sector, including key issues around fundraising, governance and oversight.

With the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act having come into force, attendees will discuss the Charity Commission’s new regulatory powers to promote good governance in the sector and the ability of charities to undertake social investments.

It will also be an opportunity to look at innovative approaches to fundraising and the future of self-regulation in the sector. Following the establishment of the new Fundraising Regulator, delegates will discuss its role in restoring public trust in fundraising, including its new responsibility over the Code of Fundraising Practice and the implementation of a Fundraising Preference Service.
