General Election: what does it mean for charities?

...a question we are all waiting to see played out with bated breath. Join us for a live Q&A discussion on Tuesday 13 June! #DSCAnswers

The results of the General Election will be announced on Friday 9 June. Whatever the result, we know that this affects all of us in the third sector enormously which is why we’re hosting a post-election live discussion to explore any issues or queries that arise. This will take place on Tuesday 13 June via Facebook live and we will also be uploading clips to Twitter.

You will hear from DSC Director of Policy and Research, Jay Kennedy, along with Andrew O’Brien, Head of Policy and Engagement, Charity Finance Group; and Kathy Evans, Chief Executive, Children England; Carol Mack, Chief Executive, Association of Charitable Foundations.

When: 14:00- 15:00 Tuesday 13 June

Where: Facebook live (follow our Facebook page to watch the livestream!)

Please tweet us any questions @DSC_Charity using the hashtag #DSCAnswers,  and make sure you tune in on the day!
