Complying with ‘other’ legal and regulatory requirements – Seminar

Target Audience

Charity Trustees and others working on compliance with the Charities Governance Code.


Standard 4.2. of the Charities Governance Code reads:

4.2. Find out the laws and regulatory requirements that are relevant to your charity and comply with them. 

We know from our work with organisations that this is an area that charities frequently seek guidance on and this one hour seminar will help with compliance with this part of the Charities Governance Code.

Please note this seminar does not cover compliance with the Charities Act 2009 specifically. It covers a number of other legal and regulatory obligations but cannot present an exhaustive list for all charities.
