CFG joins with partners to produce Charities Bill briefing

Charity Finance Group partners with sector to produce Charities Bill briefing paper for Peers.

Charity Finance Group (CFG) has joined with sector partners to produce a briefing paper on the Charities Bill.

The Bill implements a series of recommendations made by the Law Commission’s report on technical issues in charity law, building on the review of the Charities Act 2006 carried out by Lord Hodgson. Written for Peers, the joint briefing paper will inform the second reading committee stage in the House of Lords.

Roberta Fusco, Director of Policy and Communications at CFG, comments: “The Law Commission’s recommendations to government and the subsequent Charities Bill have been broadly welcomed by the sector. The changes will give charities greater flexibility and will help them navigate the law more easily, therefore allowing them to be more effective.

"The briefing paper to Peers is an important piece of work as it not only sets out the clauses of the Charities Bill that we support, but raises areas of concern on behalf of charities.”
