Our workshops take delegates through the process, focusing on the first day on the basics needed to run an effective Gift Aid scheme, putting the organisation at the heart of good Gift Aid practice, and supporting individuals through a maze of Gift Aid rules.“On day two we focus on the benefits rules and how they affect every aspect of Gift Aid. We also take delegates through how an HMRC audit is run.” Three years ago, Robson joined forces with Elanor Hoskin of The Charity Knowledge Hub. Their Gift Aid workshops are taking place across the country with Manchester (June) and London (October) planned for this year.Delegates are invited to complete a pre workshop questionnaire, tailoring workshops to match the skills of those attending, giving practical examples of how to implement the HMRC rules and regulations.   234 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img News FranceEurope – Central Asia Reports and statisticsProtecting journalists Violence to go further Thomas Samson / AFP Chaired by Jean-Marie Delarue, the former head of France’s National Consultative Commission on Human Rights, this commission submitted its report to the prime minister on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day. Concluding that relations between police and media have worsened significantly in recent years and that journalists have been subjected to “growing and uninhibited obstruction” by the police, the report makes 32 recommendations designed to guarantee “the right to protection of life and human integrity, defense of public order and freedom of information” when reporters cover police operations.“We are studying the 32 proposals submitted to the prime minister by the Delarue Commission” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “This is clearly a substantive effort based on the conclusion that relations have deteriorated significantly. The formation of a monitoring committee in the coming days, bringing together representatives of the media and police and members of the commission, should facilitate concrete progress. It seems that the problem we have long been raising is finally being addressed.”The Delarue Commission’s report stresses that the police have an obligation “to ensure the safety of journalists in the face of attacks by demonstrators, including in places and times of tension, which cannot be denied scrutiny by the press,” and that the journalists should be free to station themselves behind special cordons during demonstrations.The report says that journalists should be allowed to wear protective equipment “which is now often confiscated from them” and that the police cannot object to being filmed or photographed by journalists, whose right to do this must be “incorporated as a new and permanent parameter” of police operations.The report insists that journalists should be able to cover the dispersal of protests “without being threatened with arrest, as long as they physically dissociate themselves from those being dispersed, contrary to what is suggested in the National Law Enforcement Plan (SNMO)” which RSF criticized for this reason.It says the police should appoint “press officers” at demonstrations to provide reporters with operational information and deal with any difficulties that arise. Discrimination against reporters with no press cards or official accreditation – permitted in practice by the SNMO and criticized by RSF – would be prevented by the report’s proposal that, in the absence of a regular press card, the police should accept a media “employer letter” or a special “public order event” press card of the kind used in the Netherlands, which RSF also recommends.The prime minister’s press office has said the 32 recommendations will be implemented jointly by the interior and culture ministers and that their implementation will be monitored by a committee to be installed in the coming days that will consist of representatives of the media and police and members of the commission.RSF also insists that these recommendations – which are based in part on its own recommendations to the Delarue Commission – should be reflected in an amended version of the SNMO and in the way the police treat reporters in the field. The judicial system must also respond to the many cases of police violence against reporters. RSF has filed 18 complaints about such cases of violence since December 2019.France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index.

Required fields are marked * Supervisor Kathryn Barger, in her role as Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, signed an Executive Order directing County Departments to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 emergency, including a moratorium on residential and commercial evictions. The order, signed March 19, outlines several actions the County of Los Angeles will take for the protection of life and property, and to preserve public order and safety.The executive order places a moratorium on residential and commercial tenant evictions. This moratorium is retroactive to March 4, 2020, the date of the County’s declaration of an emergency, and will continue through May 31, 2020. The moratorium is in line with Governor Gavin Newsom’s proclamation regarding local authority to impose such restrictions. This moratorium ensures County residents are not unduly impacted in their adherence to Public Health orders issued by the Department of Public Health.“The Board of Supervisors is committed to protecting our constituents as this emergency continues,” Supervisor Barger said. “I am committed to ensure residents do not fall into homelessness from an inability to work and pay rent as a result of public health guidelines that limit business and retail activity.”The moratorium only applies to unincorporated L.A. County areas and does not apply to incorporated cities. As of March 19, the cities of Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Burbank, Pasadena and six others have issued similar orders, with more forthcoming.Additionally, the executive order asks County Departments to engage financial institutions to identify tools to provide relief from the threat of residential foreclosure and displacement, and to promote housing security and stability. Housing is a multi-part chain and the County is working to ensure all involved parties work together to prevent displacement during this crisis.The Order also directs the creation of an emergency office, comprised of multiple County Departments, to provide rapid response and resources for small businesses impacted during the emergency. This strike team will be available via phone, web, text, and with multilingual services to assist businesses and individuals to apply for various forms of relief provided at the local, state, and federal levels, including the $2 billion United States Small Business Administration Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.The County is focused on ensuring the temporary impacts of this emergency do not lead to long-term impacts that contribute to homelessness, displacement, or other detriments. The order includes direction to County Departments to work with local utility companies to prevent service disconnections and asks private grocers to implement measures to prevent hoarding.A copy of the proclamation can be found here.Visit for more information, including updates on closures, food services, and utility relief.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will continue to share updates at Government Supervisor Barger Signs Eviction Moratorium and Other Support for Residents and Small Businesses Published on Friday, March 20, 2020 | 2:10 pmcenter_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Make a comment Community News Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more
