Steps to Ensure Good Governance: Invitation to Our March 20 Conference

Share this page:

Charities are being urged to review their whistleblowing policies in the wake of scandals currently engulfing high-profile charities.

hlwKH logoEnsuring that staff and third parties with grievances are properly heard - and have in place transparent lines of accountability to the top of an organization – are critical requirements for today’s third sector.

Our experienced specialists across our Commercial and Private Client departments have amassed a wealth of legal expertise to prevent charities falling foul in key areas.

For example, our corporate team ensures a charity’s ‘trading’ arm is set up properly and is underpinned by contracts to safeguard its best interests. Our expertise also includes employment contracts, property issues and preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on May 25th.

As the northern partner of the nationwide Small Charities Coalition which helps trustees, staff and volunteers of over 7,000 small charities to access the skills, tools, and information they need, we co-host regular seminars and events for charity trustees and key personnel.

We would like to invite you to our forthcoming half day ‘Avoiding the Pitfalls’ conference in Leeds on Tuesday, March 20. The session will equip attendees with valuable insights into the importance of good governance in employment, fundraising and property laws.

The employment law seminar will cover legal structures role and rights of employees, workers and volunteers and how to deal with potential claims. It will also advise on steps to manage underperforming staff.

This will be followed by a session on fundraising in a changing climate and the options available. Ensuring grant applications hit the mark and legacy campaigns will also be covered.

Our property presentation will provide advice for tenants entering into a new commercial lease as well as an update on property litigation - and the pitfalls of break clauses for tenants.

Taking place from 8.30am-1.30pm at our Leeds office at Capitol House, Russell Street, Leeds LS1 5SP, the conference includes a panel Q and A following each session along with networking, breakfast and lunch.
