Charities are operating in an increasingly challenging environment and face many external commercial and regulatory pressures. The Charity Governance Code emphasises that good governance in charities is fundamental to their success.

This free workshop explains the latest developments in this area which all charities and their trustees and senior managers need to be aware of.  Solicitors from Rollits' specialist Charities Team are holding this briefing to highlight the latest legal developments and give practical advice as to how these will impact upon charities and their trustees.
