This comprehensive guide offers practical support and advice to anyone involved in the management and administration of charities.

Packed with practical advice, How to Run a Charity offers the reader all the essential facts needed to set up and run a successful charity. From legal parameters and their practical impacts, to finance and managing assets, to the roles and responsibilities of charity boards and trustees, the book offers both theory and practice, with case studies to highlight not only where things can go right, but also where things can go (sometimes horribly) wrong.

The book has been extensively revised for this second edition to cover all the latest legislation, including:-

  • New law on social investment, the revised disqualification regime for charity trustees and new fundraising regulatory regime under the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016
  • Company law and regulatory changes under the Small Business Employment and Enterprise Act 2015
  • Revised and enhanced regulatory expectations from the Charity Commission for charities and trustees
  • Reporting and accounting changes including the introduction of the 2015 Charities SORP (Statement of Recommended Practice)
  • The new and enhanced version of the Charities Code of Good Governance
  • Progress in the implementation of the charity law and regulatory regime in Northern Ireland; changes and developments in Scotland regarding charity law and regulation
