Lords Charities Committee to examine charitable sectors in devolved nations

Howard Lake | 8 November 2016 | News

The Lords Select Committee on Charities will today take evidence from charities and regulators in Northern Ireland and Scotland on the workings of charitable sector.
It will explore how well charities, charity policy and regulation, and charity fundraising, work in those areas. In a series of evidence sessions the Committee has been assessing the sustainability of the charity sector, exploring the pressures and challenges that charities face, as well as the roles of governments and public bodies.
There will be two sessions this afternoon. At 4pm the Committee will hear from Frances McCandless, Chief Executive, Charity Commission for Northern Ireland, and David Robb, Chief Executive, Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
At 5pm, the Committee will heave from Seamus McAleavey, Chief Executive, Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action, and Martin Sime, Chief Executive, Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.
The committee members are likely to raise issues such as:
•    What role should Parliament and the UK Government have?
•    What are the main challenges facing charities in your area, and how are they different to other areas of the UK?
•    What impact have UK charity and fundraising scandals had in your areas?
You can follow the Lords Select Committee on Charities‘ evidence sessions via Twitter using the #HLCharities hashtag. You can also watch the evidence session live online. Sessions are recorded and can be viewed later.
