Her policy interests also include charity campaigning, the sector’s independence, transparency and accountability, and more broadly issues of public trust and confidence in charities. Over the years Elizabeth has acted as secretariat for a number of specialist policy projects, including the review of fundraising regulation, and NCVO’s independent review of the Charities Act.
