The Government has today (22 March) published its response to the Law Commission report on ‘Technical Issues in Charity Law'. 

Now the word "technical" might be a bit of a giveaway - it is not a laugh a minute, but might help you if you are unable to sleep! 

That said, for lawyers like me it has some practical and very helpful changes aimed at: 

  • making disposals of property easier
  • alterations to governing documents easier to achieve
  • allowing the payment of trustees for goods (subject to conditions) etc

We will be publishing some individual ebriefings on each of the recommended changes and how they might make your life easier - so watch this space!
