An NI Fundraising Regulation Working Group has now been established – a “starting point for a full consultation on the way forward”.
The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland is embracing Open Data, according to its news release. It is one of the first non-departmental bodies to take the step, as part of a public sector drive towards greater transparency.
Northern Ireland’s sector umbrella body NICVA is currently delivering infrastructure support for faith based organisations on behalf of the Department for Communities. As part of this work, they have produced a short survey for faith based organisations to complete, in order to understand the needs of these organisations and the work that they do with the wider community in Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland’s sector body NICVA has created a web page to “collate relevant articles, statements, and questions relating to the process of the UK leaving the European Union”. The hub will seek to provide information and updates on the many unanswered questions around important EU issues such as rights, environmental protections, employment law and sector funding.
Three quite short items of interest to any charities operating in Northern Ireland, and a little for the Republic too.
Good Governance roadshow
The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland, in partnership with the Developing Governance Group, is running a series of seminars offering charities advice and information on the latest developments in charity regulation.
New research from the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland shows that over three quarters of people in Northern Ireland have a medium to high level of trust and confidence in charities.
Launched by the Communities Minister, this is the first such research from the regulator, and compares well with recent England and Wales research results.
