What does the Queen’s speech mean for charities?

Written by David Maxwell on . Posted in Care Homes, Dementia, Health & Wellbeing, Latest News, Research, RSS Newsletter, Training

This year’s Queen’s speech was missing some of the usual pomp and pageantry following the snap election, but there will be plenty for MPs and peers to get their teeth into during the next two years. What does it mean for charities?

Two-year legislative programme

At the weekend the government announced that there would not be a Queen’s speech in 2018 as it wanted to give more time for parliamentary scrutiny of Brexit legislation. Bills fall at the end of each year-long session unless they are carried over, meaning there will be less pressure to push things through quickly. Though some critics have pointed out that this also helps the government avoid a potentially awkward vote on next year’s Queen’s speech…

How charities are responding to the fall in public trust

Written by David Maxwell on . Posted in Care Homes, Dementia, Health & Wellbeing, Latest News, Research, Training

The Charity Commission… published research that indicates public trust in charities is in decline. This is a serious piece of research, one that echoes the findings of similar studies over the last year. In short, it is believed that the fall in public trust is real, it is here, and it is a threat to the future of the charity sector…

NCVO, CharityComms and ACEVO are working together on this, supported by numerous charities. We’ve also seen great stuff from DSC, Charity Bank and others. I want to be clear: we do not have all the answers. There are diverse views on the nature of the problem and potential solutions.
