ImpACT Coalition calls for further transparency in charitable sector

According to a press release, the ImpACT Coalition, a movement which aims to improve transparency and accountability in the UK charity sector, has published ‘Through a glass darly: the case for accelerating the drive for accountability, clarity and transparencyin the charity sector’.

The publication contains thought pieces from experts in the charitable sector, and addresses the main issues surrounding transparency.

Director of Fundraising at Scope and Chair of the ImpACT Coalition, Alan Gosschalk, said: “Being truly accountable to our stakeholders should be a key priority for any charity.  However, it’s not always easy to do, and it’s not always easy to know what information should or shouldn’t be opened up to scrutiny.  We’re delighted to be publishing this collection of thought pieces comprehensively covering the latest evidence and theory to make the case for why transparency is important, and how we might become more accountable through it.  We hope this publication, and the questions raised in it, will stimulate further debate in this area.”

“At a time where charities are under a huge amount of pressure to demonstrate the impact of what they do and to justify their actions, we believe that transparency is the way forward – answering our critics with the truth about why we do what we do.”
