Not for Profit Update – April 2021

As Spring is now upon us and the days are getting brighter it seems like a natural metaphor marks the progress we are making along the pathway out of lockdown. As lockdown measures start to ease we appreciate this will still be a very difficult time for the sector. In this edition we give an overview of the charity commission bitesize video guides to help trustees be more certain in uncertain times as well as highlighting the Fundraising Regulator’s pledge of assistance to help advise charities on best practice as we see a shift in restrictions.

We also review the outcome of the compliance case report into the National Trust for some lessons learned when engaging with controversial or divisive issues. There are also articles on the outcome of the Supreme Court rulings over sleep-ins, details of a new £40m environmental fund, new IR35 legislation and more!
