Charities and public service delivery - Wednesday 21 June 2006

On 21 March 2006 the Charity Commission hosted a conference on the delivery of public services by charities.

Over 160 people attended the event in London, including representatives of charities, government departments and other organisations with an interest in the issue.

The Directory of Social Change provided invaluable assistance both with administration of delegate booking and with facilitation on the day of the conference.

The conference was intended to raise awareness of the Commission’s key messages on public service delivery amongst practitioners, funders and grant givers; to learn from the sector’s experience; and to discuss the impact of public service delivery on the charitable sector. It was not intended to be an end in itself; we anticipated that the discussion would help to inform the development of future guidance, identify where additional guidance is needed, and identify any issues on which the Commission should take action.
