Registration and Refreshments

Opening prayer and Welcome - Elizabeth Wilson, Partner at Wrigleys Solicitors

A time to celebrate - Sr Pat Devine FMA, Salesian Sisters

We'll be taking a look at some of the success stories of where Religious have made a real difference to the communities they serve.

A time to reflect - Sylvie Nunn, Partner at Wrigleys Solicitors

Some organisations (of all types - charities and non-charities, Religious and non-Religious) have made mistakes in the past. This might be a result of abuse, neglect, someone trying to take advantage of the Community's goodwill, or just human error. What lessons can be learned to ensure that beneficiaries, Religious and others are kept safe?

Refreshment break

A time to invest - Kate Murphy, Charity Advisor at Rathbone Greenbank Investments

We live in a world where investment is global and we often don't see the end users or producers - what does ethical investment look like in this context?

A time to save or a time to spend? - Amanda Francis, Partner at Buzzacott

Should you spend to demonstrate public benefit or save for the future? Amanda Francis will look at reserves and grant-making.


We hope that you will stay to join us for lunch.
