Charity Commission to start live-streaming public meetings

The Charity Commission has announced that people can watch its next public meeting online via a live video stream.

People will be able to watch the next public meeting, which takes place in Southampton on 29 February, via the Commission’s website.
The event will also be recorded so that people can rewind and watch it when it’s convenient for them.

Its first live-stream is part of a wider series of digital improvements. 
Sarah Atkinson, director of policy and communications at the Commission, said: “We have a number of digital improvements to our services and communications in the pipeline, making it easier for trustees to access our information and services.

“By live-streaming our public meetings, we’re hoping to attract a new and wider audience, and invite all interested trustees and charity professionals to join us, whether they’re at home, at work or on the move.

“Hearing directly from us is a good opportunity, particularly for new trustees, to learn more about issues facing the sector, to contribute to discussions, and to hear about the Commission’s recent work.”
The Commission holds quarterly public meetings for trustees around the country, in an effort to increase attendance outside London.
The Commission expects that it will also live stream other future meetings. Find out more about attending the Southampton meeting from the Commission’s website.  There is no need to register to watch the livestream and a link will be available from the Commission’s site nearer the time.
