The changing face of charities in the UK

Page Contents >

Geraldine Peacock, chair of the Charity Commission, will speak on the changing face of charities in the UK on Monday 1 November at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

The Charity Commission is at an exciting point in its history. With the drafting of new legislation on charities, set against the background of declining rates of volunteering and political participation, and the war against terrorism, the Commission faces many new challenges concerning its appropriate roles, mandates and functions. What challenges are facing the Charity Commission in the new millennium?

Geraldine Peacock has recently been appointed chair of the Charity Commission. Prior to this she was chief executive of Guide Dogs for the Blind Association from 1997-2003.

Professor Jude Howell, director of the Centre for Civil Society at LSE, will chair this event.

The Changing Face of Charities in the UK is on Monday 1 November at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton St, London WC2A 2AE. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
