Stronger charities for a stronger society

The House of Lords Select Committee on Charities has recently published Stronger charities for a stronger society. This wide-ranging report reflects on the need for charities, government, infrastructure bodies, the Charity Commission and funders to adapt and be more flexible to ensure that effective small and medium-sized charities, in particular, can continue to provide significant benefits to Britain.

The report covers themes such as governance, finance, funding, public service delivery contracting, digital and technological developments, volunteering, regulation, and campaigning and advocacy – offering 100 conclusions and 42 recommendations within the 150-page document.
