BRA’s Communications Officer, Janet Foster, participated in a panel discussion at The British Academy on 15 June at an event to mark the launch of a new toolkit to help charities and voluntary organisations improve records management. The toolkit was produced by the British Academy Research Project ‘Digitising the Mixed Economy of Welfare in Britain’ in partnership with Charity Finance Group.
