Leading in times of uncertainty
Thank you for joining us at our conference that explored key developments in charity law and governance.

We know that it is often a struggle to recall everything that you learn at an event; information and insight that seemed crystal clear at the time often seems indistinct by the time you are back at your desk.

To help, we have tapped into the knowledge of the external speakers at our Charity Law and Governance Conference, as well as our charities team, to identify a selection of our favourite resources for charities. To access them, simply click on the hyperlink of the numbered titles.

Handy charity resources
As a team, we are often called upon to advise clients on governance issues that go beyond things that are strictly legal. This can involve picking up on board dynamics, supporting the staff team or addressing other sensitive topics. It sometimes helps to do that by referring to guidance produced by a third-party. 'One Minute Tips on Governance', published by Compass Partnership, is a handy collection of 20 one-page tips just right for situations like that.

The title says it all. The Charity Commission issues a wide range of useful guidance, but CC3 is the truly essential starting point for any new trustee.

It's useful for pretty much everything...the flowcharts that accompany some of the operational guidance can be very helpful, particularly when explaining the options available to trustees and their charities.

Tax and HMRC guidance
9. HMRC Guidance on Charities and Investment

These are much more detailed than before and take into account the many shades of grey that exist in charity investments. Read this alongside the Charity Commission's own guidance on charities and investment for maximum effect. This is important reading for anyone working in, or dealing with, charities.
