We urge all rural groups to attend this event.
The Independent Review Panel of Charity Regulation seeks the views of charities in rural areas on how well the charities regulatory framework, which is administered by the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland is working and what could work better.
The Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 is being reviewed and your views are important to the Independent Review Panel (‘the Panel’). The Panel invites you to attend a virtual community meeting to discuss charity regulation in Northern Ireland and to share your views on whether it could work better. This will include short presentations from the Independent Review Panel on the issues within the Review’s scope and we will seek your feedback through questions and answers, and small group discussions.
This one-hour seminar aims to inform you about the Review’s objectives, and provides opportunity for the Panel to hear and understand your views of charity regulation. Receiving your feedback on what’s working and what’s not will be critical in informing the Panel’s recommendations to the Minister later this summer.
The Independent Panel comprises Professor Oonagh Breen, University College Dublin, Dr Lesley Carroll, Prisoners’ Ombudsman NI and Mr Noel Lavery, former Permanent Secretary, most recently at the Dept for the Economy in Northern Ireland. You can learn more about the speakers and read the Review’s Terms of Reference here.
