It’s a scandal? Surrey Community Action Conference 2018

It’s a scandal? Declining trust in charities and restoring public faith

 A conference for Surrey’s Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector

Thursday 11 October 9.30-2.00pm

Christ Church, Woking

Tickets £30 (including lunch)

Recent research by the Charity Commission found that the public ‘now trust charities less than they trust the average person in the street’. High profile charity closures following allegations of mismanagement, aggressive fundraising practices, questions over CEO salaries and more recently international development sex abuse scandals have seen levels of public trust in charities eroded.

Join our ‘It’s a scandal?’ conference where we’ll be taking a closer look at the impact these headline making controversies have had on the charity sector, identify what the public consider to be trustworthy behaviours in charities, ask whether regulation is the answer and establish the steps the sector must take to regain trust.

The programme includes:

A panel discussion facilitated by Mark Carter, BBC Surrey with views from the media, politics, the VCFS and from a national funder. 

Mini seminars on:

Core Costs education and transparency delivered by the Lloyds Foundation

Data Protection – delivered by Musab Hamsi of Ellis Whittham

Good Governance – delivered by Barlow Robbins

Crisis communications – delivered by Surrey Community Action


Keynote speaker: TBA
