The Trust Partnership is deeply saddened by the passing of the Queen. As a patron of more than 600 charities, including almshouses, she showed by example the meaning of ‘caritas’, or charity by another name. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time, as well as with all those charities which the Queen served so faithfully. As HRH Prince Philip was to her, so she was the ‘strength and stay’ for so many institutions.  

Charities Act

It has seemed a long time in the making but the Charities Act (2022) has now received Royal Assent. We consider some of the changes you can expect to see and what this means for you as a trustee. In our view, it simplifies existing legal frameworks, especially regarding permissions about how charities use their assets. In short, the Act further empowers trustees and gives charities greater operational flexibility. Please click on the title to find out more.
