Our work with faith-based charities has led us to develop particular expertise in some of the key sectors in which they operate such as health, education and overseas development. The Wellers charity law team understands the difficulties that face managers and trustees of charities in these areas and also the challenges of operating in developing nations where the environment can often be unpredictable and lack infrastructure.
If you are a trustee or manager in a faith-based charity, you may want to find out more by attending seminar presented by Paul Martin entitled Advising Charities Existing for Religious Purposes – What You Need to Know. The event is at 2.30 until 4pm on 19th July 2023.
Paul Martin is a consultant at Wellers and regarded as one of the leading authorities on Charity Law as it applies to faith-based charities. His virtual classroom seminar for MBL will provide an outline of the distinctive features of religious charities as well as practical information to give an understanding of their functions, strengths, and weaknesses. Drawing on the findings from recent cases including Christ Church Oxford, Central Gurdwara and the Saint George Educational Trust the session will also consider the impact of public perception, allegations, regulatory interventions, and reputational damage.
