The Law Commission published its report on Technical Issues in Charity Law in September 2017 following a public consultation.
Charities face unprecedented challenges as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak as they try to continue operating in a period of uncertainty and with a lack of resources. We recognise that the outbreak has, in fact, increased the work of some of our clients who are trying to meet the increased needs of their communities at this time.
For charities like yours to continue and thrive in this more home-based world at the moment, we have compiled guidance on the practical issues you may need to consider at this time, e.g. governance issues such as the requirement to call your AGM or trustees’ meetings, executing documents, occupation of properties either as landlord or tenant, dealing with employee absences and so on.
It is exactly at times like these where charities are so valuable and we are here to help you with that.
