Westminster Social Policy Forum

The future for charity fundraising: transparency, trust, and data protection

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 discuss key elements from the Fundraising Regulator’s three-year Strategic Plan - expected to be published this summer - as well as its ongoing work in developing the Code of Fundraising Practice and implementing the Fundraising Preference Service, and the further action that might be taken to build trust in the sector, ensure transparency and protect vulnerable groups.


The conference will also follow the Government’s consultation on the civil society strategy, and attendees will examine the implications for joined-up working, funding, campaigning and lobbying.


Further planned sessions will discuss the initial implementation of EU GDPR, as well as the potential impact of the Data Protection Bill on the sector - aiming to add clarity to existing regulations on how statutory controls will be applied in the UK.
