Governing Documents

A further duty of the trustees of a Charity is to comply with the Charity's governing document and to keep under review whether the purpose for which the charity was formed is still useful. Our lawyers can give useful advice on:

  • the interpretation of the governing document
  • amendments to your governing document to comply with current best practice
  • the procedure for making amendments and obtaining Charity Commission approval
  • preparing legally compliant governing documents for a new charity structure

If you need help with your governing document please contact us.
