Spotlight on The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016

The Charities Act changed the law in four key areas when it was introduced a year ago: social investment so that a charity’s money could be invested in a way which does not just seek to make a financial return for the charity, but also aims in some way to further the charity’s objects; more controls over the fundraising relationship between charities and commercial organisations that raise funds on their behalf; disqualification of charity trustees and more regulatory powers for the Charity Commission over charities, including a new power to give official warnings.

One year on, we consider how the new regime is bedding in and take a look at a number of incremental implementations that have taken place during the course of the past year. Alice Faure Walker, a senior consultant at Bates Wells Braithwaite, Rosamund McCarthy, Partner, Bates Wells Braithwaite and Stephen Dunmore, CEO, Fundraising Regulator will be taking a fresh look at the Act and focussing on the challenges so far.

The Charities Act session will be at 11:15 on Wednesday 5th July.
