Produced to help charities navigate common legal questions, our Legal Toolkit for Charities is free to download.

Intended as a reference tool for UK charities, we hope that the Legal Toolkit for Charities will enable charity professionals to better understand some of the legal challenges that they may face in their day-to-day work.

The latest edition of the Toolkit, published in September 2017, includes new content covering social investment and trading subsidiaries, as well as essential reading on the approaching general data protection regulation (‘GDPR’). 

We are grateful to law firms Stone King and Burness Paull who continue to support us in producing the Toolkit.

The Toolkit provides guidance on:

  • instructing solicitors
  • pro bono – when and how to access it
  • charity law
  • commercial contracts
  • data protection law
  • employment law
  • intellectual property law
  • property law
  • VAT
