I hold a Fellowship National Diploma with Distinction in the Specialist field of Paralegal Practice for the Voluntary and Community Sectors.
The law on the work of Charities and Community Organisations is ever more complex. however help is available to get regular updates on the Government’s changes to Charity Law.
If readers are involved with a Charity or Voluntary Sector organisation and with limited legal knowledge then the following may help:
Sandy Adirondack, a voluntary sector governance and legal trainer, has a legal update website for voluntary and community organisations at www.sandy-a.co.uk/legal.htm, written in plain English and covering a huge range of topics affecting these organisations..
She also provides email alerts when the website is updated – to sign up for these send contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The website and emails are free of charge, although Sandy asks once a year if those who receive the emails are willing to pay a small, purely discretionary subscription towards them.
