This book provides clear and practical guidance to the legal and regulatory framework within which charities operate in the UK, and its impact on their governance. The second edition has been brought fully up-to-date in order to reflect the significant changes in the UK's legal landscape. It includes commentary on the long-awaited Charitable Incorporate Organization, borrowing by charities in the current financial climate, and the consolidation of the UK's Charities Act 1993 and Charities Act 2006 into the Charities Act 2011. The book is also updated to reflect the wider legal framework in which charities operate, including the coming into force of the Equality Act 2010 and the Bribery Act 2010.
