A voluntary sector researcher has read through a large pile of written submissions to the House of Lords Select Committee on Charities so you don’t have to! Specifically the 86 submissions which answered the question “What is the role and purpose of charities in civic society in England and Wales?”.
Read ‘Identity crisis: defining voluntary action‘ on Ellie Munro’s Voluntary Action and Other Animals blog.
For all the submissions the Committee received following its call for evidence, see this link to the publications download page. Various sector bodies have also put links to their material on their websites.
The committee is about to hold a session on the ‘role of charities and regulators in devolved nations‘ as this news item is published (Tuesday 8th November). Transcripts and videos of sessions already held are linked on the committee’s timeline page.
