Westminster Social Policy Forum

The future for charity fundraising: finance, data and priorities for the Fundraising Regulator

Morning, Tuesday, 30th October 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will be an opportunity to consider key issues for charity fundraising, such as transparency, public trust and data protection.


Delegates will assess key elements from the Fundraising Regulator’s three-year strategic plan - expected this summer - as well as the potential implications of the Regulator’s new complaints guidance - which encourages charities to publicise their complaints procedures.


There will also be discussion on the initial impact of the implementation of EU GDPR and the Data Protection Act - looking at how charities are rethinking fundraising activities, issues they have faced in adapting to the new legislation, and how these might best be addressed going forward.


Following updates to the Code of Fundraising Practice, which includes new transparency requirements for online fundraising platforms and updated guidance from the Fundraising Regulator to help fundraising platforms stick to this code, further sessions will focus on new ways to improve trust in the sector, ensure transparency and protect vulnerable groups.


The conference will also be an opportunity to consider issues in the consultation on the civil society strategy - with the Government expected to respond later this year - and implications for joined-up working, funding, campaigning and lobbying.
