Stephensons has the knowledge to assist with legal issues facing charities and not for profit organisations. The Charities Act 2011 defines a charity as a ‘body or trust which is for a charitable purpose that provides benefit to the public’.
Our lawyers understand that some issues faced by charities are similar to those faced by other businesses. However, our experience in this sector means that we are acutely aware of the areas that are unique to charitable organisations.
We advise a variety of charities and we act for a number of not for profit organisations who are set up as companies limited by guarantee.
