Volunteers are often the bedrock of charitable organisations, but they are not protected from sexual harassment within those organisations.
CLA members in the Midlands were able to participate in the meeting from our office in central Birmingham. The collegiate spirit of charity law was very much in evidence as we exchanged perspectives on the presentations, which covered:
- the Charity Commission’s new guidance on litigation (CC38);
- Lord Hodgson’s review of the Lobbying Act as it applies to third party campaigners;
- the charity tribunal’s decision on Cambridgeshire Target Shooting Association’s bid to register as a charity – and the implications for other sports clubs;
- the implications for charities of the new requirement to maintain a register of ‘people with significant control’.
Those present were very positive about the event and we look forward to hosting further meetings during the coming year.
