The Charity Times Annual Conference will return in 2019, with expert insights into what the future of charity will look like in a rapidly changing world.

Global issues such as climate change, the war on plastic, Brexit and data protection are all set to have huge impacts on the third sector over the coming years, but with technology rapidly replacing the need for human interaction, the future of charity has become increasingly blurred.

Charity Times Annual Conference 2019: The Future of charity, will be held at the Waldorf Hilton, London on 2 May 2019 and will look at some of these issues, as well as artificial intelligence, diversity, the relationship between the government and the charity sector and much more.

"Donors are quickly moving into a high-tech society and are simultaneously looking for charities to pave the way towards greater social change," Charity Times editor Lauren Weymouth said.

"Annual reports need to be more transparent than ever before and charities need to have strong safeguarding systems in place to stand a chance at survival. This conference will address what the future has in store for the charity sector as we explore some of the key issues that are likely to affect charities over the coming years."

Speakers for the event and a full agenda will be announced in due course.

Last year's speakers included former Kids Company CEO, Camila Batmanghelidjh; Baroness Liz Barker; the Fundraising Regulator, the Royal Society and more.

Register to attend and stand the chance to win an Apple Watch on the day of the conference.
