Due to a great response, places for the conference, which takes place on 19 October at Manchester Conference Centre, are limited and there now are only 14 places remaining. It is advised you to register your place today to avoid disappointment and join charity and public sector professionals who strive for the same aims and objectives and face the same challenges.
Concerns over alleged malpractice and harassment have put fundraising, its regulation and code of practice under heated scrutiny. Sir Stuart Etherington’s report ‘Regulating fundraising for the future: Trust in charities, confidence in fundraising regulation’ (2015) made it clear that there needs to be a better balance between the public’s right to be left alone and a charities’ right to ask for funding.
A key recommendation was a new, single regulator to be an enforcer of the code of fundraising practice across all fundraising organisations in the UK, one able to proactively investigate breaches of standards. Stronger sanctions have been recommended – such as naming and shaming organisations, suspending them from activities and ordering compulsory training. An annual complaints report is set to give a clear indication to the organisations who have been the most complained about and the key reasons for the complaints.
At Charity Reform: Implementing Guidance on Fundraising and Governance delegates will learn how new statutory guidance on charity governance, responsibilities, fundraising practice and financial management can be best implemented throughout their organisation.
