In a challenging financial environment, many charities are seeking new sources of funding. You may have just started trading and want to generate an income. Or it could be that you wish to expand or develop an existing enterprise. Regardless of which it is, we can help.
Some charities have engaged in social enterprises for hundreds of years before the term became commonplace. Others have relied on grants or other sources of income. Whether you are a social enterprise or a charity, we can help you understand the restrictions on trading under charity law and ensure your organisation’s trading activities are properly structured.
Our charity legal experts have specialised for many years in advising on projects that bring together expertise in corporate, commercial, funding and finance and charity law. We apply that expertise to deliver expert support to social enterprises of all sorts. In particular, we can help you to establish, finance and operate your social enterprise, providing commercially focused, practical advice on:
- forming and structuring your enterprise;
- public procurement, state aid and social value;
- funding, financing and investment, including social investment;
- grants, contracts and other funding agreements;
- identifying and protecting your intellectual property; and
- Social Investment Tax Relief.
As a Top-Five Charities Firm, with independently recognised expertise and specialist knowledge of sectors including housing, health and social care, faith, values-based businesses, community organisations and social enterprises, we are well positioned to provide practical and well-informed advice on how charities can deliver social enterprise.
