Charity Law and Governance: A Practical Guide
is the essential publication on the legal and regulatory framework within which both registered and unregistered charities in England and Wales operate, as well as being the approved text for those taking the ICSA Level 4 Certificate in Charity Law and Governance.

The book explores the meaning of governance in the charity sector and the link between law, good governance and the role of trustees in the stewardship of charitable funds and assets.

This revised edition covers all the latest developments in charity law and governance, including:

  • The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016
  • Company law and regulatory changes under the Small Business Employment and Enterprise Act 2015
  • New and revised/enhanced Charity Commission regulatory expectations for charities and trustees
  • Revised and enhanced Charity Commission core guidance for charities and trustees
  • The latest changes to reporting and accounting, including the introduction of the 2015 Charities Statement of Recommended Practice.

Containing a wealth of expert commentary and case studies highlighting important aspects of charity law and governance, this book is an invaluable guide for anyone involved in the sector, and particularly for those working in roles affected by legal, regulatory or governance issues.
