Referendum Breakfast: Charities [CLOSED]

Referendum Breakfast: Charities [CLOSED]

Sponsored by Turcan Connell

The referendum campaign delivered a grassroots activism that has not been seen in Scotland for a generation.

Can the third sector tap into the dynamism and high levels of participation and put itself closer to the centre of public life? Can it maintain the momentum towards greater social justice and a commitment to tackle inequality?

How can it influence the debate on new powers in a positive manner? How can further devolution be meaningful for Scotland's democracy, society and economy?

What might new "tax and welfare" powers under an enhanced devolution settlement actually mean for charities in Scotland?

How might further powers around income tax (and tax reliefs?) mean for charity fundraising? Is it feasible to deliver control for the entire welfare state to Scotland? If not, which additional welfare powers might make a difference - if indeed it is possible to carve out powers over parts of the welfare state and not others?

Through all of this, can the charity sector play an enhanced role in public life, while ensuring continued security of funding and delivering an effective service to its beneficiaries?

Book your place today and be part of the first event to examine the implications of the referendum result for the charitable sector.
