FINANCE NEWS: Launch of panel for accountants in the non-profit sector

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy has launched a voluntary sector panel to support its members working for charities.

It is the first panel that the institute has launched in recent years and is chaired by Chris Harris, finance director at Action for Blind People.

Harris said: "There are growing links between the public sector, including local authorities, and charities. As a result, there are more CIPFA members working in the voluntary sector."

According to Harris, divisions between statutory bodies and charities were blurring and the institute represented a wider not-for-profit sector and not just public sector bodies. CIPFA already has panels in traditional areas such as health and local government.

The panel will discuss issues of interest to charity finance professionals, said Harris. An internal launch in early December was attended by delegates from the Charity Finance Directors' Group and the Charity Commission.
