The event, being held in London, has been called to explain the work of the unit and canvass views on how it could promote good governance in the religious sector more effectively. Topics to be discussed include the implications of the Charities Act 2006 for faith-based charities and the benefits of charity registration.
The FSCU, which is partially funded by the Department of Communities and Local Government, was launched last November after a two-year consultation with religious charities of all faiths. The commission said it has chosen to focus initially on Muslim charities because Islam is the fastest-growing religion in England and Wales.
A similar event in Birmingham, held earlier this month, was attended by more than 170 delegates.
