The Charities sector faces considerable challenges in the current climate. With the limited public funding resources available and a potential reduction in voluntary donations Charities will have to focus on management of their resources as well as innovative ways of securing funding.

A changing legislative and regulatory environment will almost certainly become more demanding of all charities and voluntary and not for profit organisations.
