House of Lords Select Committee on Charities: working groups

The House of Lords select committee on charities produced their report Stronger Charities for a Stronger Society (pdf, 1.7MB) in March 2017. Read NCVO’s initial response to the report.

This is a substantial, wide-ranging and important piece of work that gives cross-party weight to what we all know – that Britain benefits greatly from our sector. The report sets out extensively how charities can make an even better impact in the changing world around them.

This is a report that should and will shape our sector going forward. This is why we have helped set up a number of working groups tasked with taking forward and implementing the committee’s recommendations. These groups are set out below.

For more information on the work of these groups, please get in touch.
