Referendum Breakfast: Charities
The referendum debate allowed the charitable sector to take a good look at itself - long overdue in some cases - in terms of funding, governance and its relationship with the beneficiaries of its work.
If there is a yes vote, what are the key considerations in terms of structures and regulation that will affect the sector? Will the concerns about the loss of UK research funding become a genuine issue? What can an independent Scotland do to address this, if so - and what can it do differently to create a backdrop where the charitable sector can thrive in Scotland?
It is accepted that a no vote does not mean no change - so what might further devolution mean for the sector and again, what specific changes would help the charitable sector to thrive?
Funding will continue to be the major issue for charities, so how will the sector addressing this challenge after September? Are charities ready to assess the result of the vote and take a long, hard look at their operations in the autumn?
