Charities play an important role in building and shaping our civil society. The Charities sector continues to face considerable challenges in the current climate.
With the ever-increasing demand for services, cuts in public funding, increased competition for voluntary donations and an ever-growing compliance burden Charities will have to focus on efficient management of their available resources as well as innovative ways of securing funding and delivering services. A changing legislative and regulatory environment will almost certainly demand more of all charities and voluntary and not for profit organisations.
