Now in its 4th year, Merseyside’s Vital Signs is a charitable giving guide from the Community Foundation for Merseyside that provides up-to-date information about the key issues facing the region’s communities.
The Community Foundation are currently compiling this year’s report and they are keen to ensure that people across the City Region are given a chance to make their voice heard over the issues that matter most to them. They have launched a short survey for local residents to have their say and the answers provided will allow the Community Foundation to guide charitable giving, providing passionate donors and philanthropists with up-to-date information about the needs in your community.
The Charity Commission has updated its Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties (CC20),
It sets out six key principles aimed at helping trustees comply with their legal duties on fundraising and also provides a checklist for trustees.
The Cabinet Office published a timetable today that explains when the different sections of the new Charities Act are going to take effect. Largely these are broken down into three separate phases – July 2016, October 2016 and April 2017. A helpful set of explanatory notes on what each of the different clauses means will also be published on legislation.gov.uk next week.
Many of the Act’s provisions help to address gaps in the Charity Commission’s protective powers and will only affect a relatively small number of charities and individuals.
However, it also makes a few significant changes – most notably on disqualification – of which all charities will need to be aware. The timetable gives trustees sufficient time to take any action that is needed.
