Vicky Browning, director of CharityComms, announces first meeting of ‘criticism working group’

The charity communications professionals membership body CharityComms is setting up a working group that will consider how charities can respond to public criticism.

It will organise a round-table discussion next month that will involve groups including the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, the Charity Commission and the Charity Finance Group. In addition, communications and fundraising practitioners from charities including Action for Children, the British Heart Foundation, the Disasters Emergency Committee and Scope plan to attend.

The group will look at how to deal with specific questions, such as media requests for information about executive pay and explaining the contribution that the sector makes to society.

Vicky Browning, director of CharityComms, said the first meeting would take place on 1 October.
