Christian Charities Handbook
Paul Martin is an expert in the field of charity law and operations. He is senior partner of the Wellers Law Group and serves on the board of two international charities
The UK charitable sector has had a worldwide impact. It has built hospitals, established schools, relieved poverty, undertaken development work and founded churches. Today the needs and opportunities are greater than ever. However the old ways of running charities no longer suffice. Legislation by successive governments and good practice laid down by the Charity Commission impose standards that did not exist 25 years ago, placing expectations on charity trustees and managers that are in many ways higher than in the commercial world.
This book is an invaluable guide to the legal and practical responsibilities associated with the governance and management of charities. The book provides an overview of principal issues and offers appropriate advice for responding to them, and is related specifically to the Christian sector.
It is rare to find so many issues dealt within one resource. Trustees and managers alike will find this a comprehensive and practical resource to enable them to achieve compliance with excellence, for the glory of God and the blessings of His church and the world.
