Charity Law

Expert guidance for charities and social enterprises

Charities and social enterprise organisations in the UK are a large and diverse group, with a range of legal requirements.

For charities and social enterprises, Jordans Charities Administration Service provides guidance on the successful formation and running of charities in England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

For professional advisers and trustees we have a range of detailed handbooks including the Charities Acts Handbook, Charity Accounts, Charity Governance, and Charity Trading.

For those who are responsible for compliance with Charity Commission requirements for charity governance and accountability, you can attend our Charity Accountability & Governance Conference in November 2014..
