Land and Buildings: key things trustees need to know
Whether you have one property or several, there are specific rules that apply to property held by charities. This session will explore the essential rules you need to be aware of.
Employees, Workers, Volunteers and Safeguarding
Very few charities can afford the luxury of a dedicated HR department, but managing employees is a key aspect of a charity trustee’s role. This session will explore your responsibilities.
Safeguarding – a governance perspective
The session will consider trustees duties, Charity Commission expectations, setting safeguarding as a key governance priority within your charity, safeguarding governance issues. The session will include a presentation and an opportunity to share experiences and key issues relating to safeguarding and governance.
Funding: Traditional and Innovative ways to raise money
Charities survive only if they can raise the necessary funds and this session looks at how charity law applies to the many ways charities can do this.
Accounts: What you need to know
Trustees are responsible for the financial health of their charity. This session will be co-presented by Stone King charity lawyers and guest specialist accountants.
IP, Data Protection and Commercial Contracts
Charities engage in a range of commercial activities which involve IP, data protection and contract law issues. This session will provide an overview of how contracts work and trustee’s duties when their charities enter into them. We shall also look at some common issues relating to intellectual property and personal data and their importance to charities.
