The Future of Charity Campaigning: #wscharityevent

Breakfast Briefing and Discussion

On Wednesday 25 February, Weber Shandwick will host a breakfast and panel debate on the future of public policy and charity campaigning. Panellists include Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Minister for Civil Society, Charlie Elphicke MP, David McAuley, Chief Executive, The Trussell Trust, Sarah Atkinson, Director of Policy & Communications, The Charity Commission, and Elizabeth Chamberlain, Policy Manager, National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

Recently there has been heated discussion about the role charities should play in political debate, with Conservative MP Conor Burns even referring Oxfam to the Charity Commission for its ‘perfect storm’ campaign.  This discussion will focus on a number of key questions, including the role of charities in the public debate, what the future holds for charity campaigning and how charities are responding to the Lobbying Act in the run up to the 2015 General Election.
