Updated 25th February 2022:
The Charities Bill, announced in the Queen’s Speech on 11 May 2021, proposes several technical, but important, changes to charity law.
The Charity Commission has been working closely with charities and their representative bodies, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), and the Law Commission, to bring these changes forward. This follows extensive consultation over several years.
In this blog I will outline 5 of the key changes in the Bill, what they would mean practically for charity trustees, and why we support them.
