Event description

Description

The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 includes new regulatory powers to improve fundraising practice and standards; extends the circumstances in which a person is disqualified from acting as a chair trustee; and gives all charities a new statutory power to make social investments. Failure of charities to comply with regulatory requirements will result in serious regulatory action alongside the risk of adverse publicity.

With continued funding pressures and poor fundraising practices grabbing headlines it is more vital than ever that charities have the capacity to manage their finances and adapt their business models. Robust financial management and governance are vital to ensuring charities are able to meet the meet the needs of their beneficiaries. Trustees have responsibilities to ensure they are best placed to safeguard assets, improve standards and ensure public trust and confidence in charities is protected. This event will support charities and voluntary organisations manage their resources effectively, achieve their strategic aims and develop the skills and support required to meet future challenges.

The Code of Fundraising Practice and new regulation of fundraising came into place on 1 November 2016 and outline the standards expected of all charitable fundraising organisations across the UK. Following the 2016 Act new controls include terms for fundraising agreements, information required for account auditing and trustee annual reports, and further statutory provisions to ensure charities comply with all requirements imposed by the fundraising regulator. Our conference agenda will help charities explore how they can go beyond being compliant with new rules and actively demonstrate their commitment to protecting donors and the public from poor fundraising practices.

Charity Reform: Effective Governance, Protection and Strategic Aims will outline progress on fundraising and governance reforms and help support the sector deliver the necessary changes to improve fundraising practices, financial management and leadership.
