Charity and Not-for-Profit Organisations

Charities and not for profit organisations need pragmatic and commercially focused advice for their senior management and trustees.

Whilst charities are regulated (for charity law purposes) by the Charity Commission, they may also be subject to other regulations such as those of the Care Quality Commission.  Therefore, to ensure good governance, trustees must have a good understanding of how their charity is regulated.


Charities and Not-For-Profit

We are experts in providing practical advice on the full range of charity law and 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.

A number of our partners are trustees of charities themselves so have personal understanding of the sensitivities involved and the nature of charitable and not for profit organisations both large and small.

Please contact a member of our team for advice on any of the following:

  • Establishing a charity
  • Incorporation of a charity/not-for-profit organisation
  • Trustee powers and reasonability
  • Commercial arrangements
  • Regulatory issues
  • Grants
