Charities and Not-for-Profit Organisations

The affordable and dependable advice you need

Running a charity can be complex and the decisions you make now can affect your organisation and its beneficiaries for decades to come. We provide dependable, pragmatic and commercially focused advice for your senior management and trustees. We’re easy to talk to, flexible and always have your best interests at heart.

We’re experts in providing practical advice on the full range of charity law and matters relating to the not-for-profit sector. From setting up a new charity or not-for-profit organisation, to advising on regulatory issues, grants, safeguarding and the terms of commercial contracts, employing staff, entering into a lease and handling complex, sensitive matters.


We get the real world

We understand your sector, the sensitivities involved in your work and the broader challenges and regulations you face. A number of our partners also act as charity trustees, so we have a personal as well as a business understanding of charitable and not-for-profit organisations of all types and sizes.

Whilst you’re regulated for charity law purposes by the Charity Commission, we know you may also subject to other regulations, such as those of the Care Quality Commission. To ensure good governance, you can rely on us to examine the minute detail on a wide range of regulatory issues including incorporation, trustee powers and reasonability.


We know every penny is important and accountable

We offer our experience to a wide range of charities and not-for-profit organisations across the South West and beyond. We’re equally at home acting for the small as well as large not-for-profit organisations and our agile, straightforward approach and clear direction always makes it quicker and easier to resolve confusing issues and make decisions with certainty.
