Finance Directors Celebrate 15 Years of Promoting Public Confidence

19th March 2003

The Charity Finance Directors' Group (CFDG) will today celebrate 15 years of advancing and promoting public education in and improved standards of management in charities. To mark the occasion, CFDG members, together with senior MPs, Lords and sector representatives will come together for a reception on the Terrace of the House of Commons. The reception has been supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

CFDG Director, Shirley Scott stated "Over the past 15 years CFDG have worked hard to raise the levels of excellence in charity management in the sector. The organisation has grown so that we now have the resources and strength of position to target key people outside the sector to help us raise public confidence in the management of charities."

CFDG Vice Chairman, Les Jones OBE said "In the short term there are a wide variety of issues we are working on. Issues such as performance reporting, insurance, pensions, reserves and the outcomes of the Strategy Unit and Cross Cutting Review are at the top of our agenda. However, we recognise that for the longer term we need to begin to address much broader issues around the sustainability of the sector and its position in society. CFDG will be focussing our efforts on continuing to raise confidence in charity management and in educating the sector on good practice issues."

Home Office Minister, Lord Filkin, who will be speaking at the reception said today:
"We would like to congratulate CFDG on fifteen successful years of promoting public confidence in charity management. The Home Office fully supports the CFDG campaign to further raise awareness and knowledge of the sector amongst key people."
