Charities Briefing 2019: Keeping Ahead of the Curve

Our world is changing faster than ever before. We now live in a digital age which give us immediate, real-time data and provides new ways of connecting and engaging. This pace of change means that charities must also change and adapt faster than ever before to meet the needs of their audiences.


With rising demand and increasingly restricted resources, charities are facing ever-growing pressure to deliver services whilst complying with regulations, changing legislation and meeting the expectations of their trustees and supporters. While charities don't always have the time to focus on the many legal regulations affecting their organisations, they must, nonetheless, comply with all of them in order to survive.

Clapham & Collinge Solicitors are holding a free-to-attend legal briefing on 'The Business of Charities: Keeping Ahead of the Curve' which will address many of the important legal issues faced by the VCSE sector and provide an essential toolkit to avoid risk and develop a sustainable future.

Included will be:

  • Are charities a ''business''?
  • Legacy giving - Ilott v Mitson
  • Contested probate claims - are charities the money grabbing beneficiaries?
  • Trustees - recruitment/retention/''existing''
  • The ignorance of trustees
  • GDPR - 9 months on
  • Charities as employers
  • Employee, self employed or volunteer?
  • Governance - does it matter?
