Smith & Williamson business advisers and Lester Aldridge solicitors invite you to join our Zoom webinar. The webinar is free to attend.

Following a very challenging 2020, we all welcome the New Year, whatever it may bring. Undoubtedly, there will be considerable uncertainty emanating from ongoing Covid-19 restrictions and the impact of Brexit. However, it is clear that demand for all charity services will continue to rise and the challenges faced by charity trustees will continue to increase, not least of all in managing the finances and planning for the future.

Against this background, we believe it timely for Trustees to once again take stock of their duties. How are their duties currently interpreted by the Charity Commission and what are their legal responsibilities? How should they be applied, particularly in planning the year ahead in light of ongoing challenges and circumstances?

Our Webinar will seek to address these issues in a concise and enlightening manner, by inviting you to join us in a “Planning for the Year Ahead” Trustees’ meeting, followed by a question and answer session with our panel.
