Money matters: Social Innovation Exchange, Euclid Network and NHS charities' accounts

David Ainsworth's round-up of what's happening in the finance world this week

A contest to find the best European social innovations will announce 10 winning entries next month. The competition, run by the Social Innovation Exchange and Euclid Network, with the European Commission, will highlight exemplar organisations that illustrate social enterprise and innovation in Europe. Other proposals include a fund to encourage social innovation.

The Association of Charitable Foundations will hold its annual conference on 22 September at BMA House in London. The keynote speakers include Marilyn Taylor, a member of the advisory board for the Centre of Charitable Giving and Philanthropy, and Danielle Walker Palmour, director of the Friends Provident Foundation.

A review into the accounts of NHS charities is expected to announce its results in December, members of its review panel said. The panel, including representatives of the Department of Health, the Treasury, NHS trusts and their associated charities, will examine whether NHS trusts should record on their balance sheets the assets of charities they run as sole trustees.
