The Government’s shake-up of fundraising regulation will be among the themes to be discussed at Fundraising Week, taking place from 19 to 21 April.

The event aims to inspire and educate those working in charity fundraising, as well as celebrate their achievements. All the events will be held at venues near the South Bank in London.

Sessions during the week will feature topics such as corporate partnerships, major donors, leadership in fundraising and digital fundraising. Other themes to be covered include legacies and in-memory giving, managing talent and personal development. There will also be Big Questions Live panel discussions about the future landscape of fundraising.

Confirmed speakers so far include Abi Robins, director of corporate responsibility programmes at British Gas, and Marcus Missen, director of communications and fundraising at WaterAid.

The full line-up of speakers and sessions will be finalised over the coming weeks.  

Fundraising Week will also for the first time incorporate Third Sector’s Business Charity Awards, which recognise the outstanding contribution that businesses in the UK make to charitable projects here and abroad. Entries are now open for the awards.

Donna Murphy, group publishing director for Third Sector, said: "Fundraising Week 2016 will be brimming with innovative ideas and fresh thinking to inject into your fundraising strategy, helping you take it to the next level.

"With a choice of various energising sessions, plus the Business Charity Awards, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to celebrate, learn, and network with your peers in fundraising."

Further details about how to book places and advertise can be found on the Fundraising Week website.
