Religious Charities Bulletin - Winter 2016
Welcome to the latest edition of the Charles Russell Speechlys Religious Charities Bulletin.
We have tried to include a range of material that will be interesting and useful to trustees and others involved with faith charities.
Andy Williams and Polly Dallyn write about an important decision in the difficult and topical area of discrimination law and faith schools. Penelope Byatt writes about a Charity Commission consultation on revised guidance for serious incident reporting –something of which every charity trustee needs to be aware.
Additionally, Sarah Anticoni writes about the thought provoking work of Belief in Mediation and Arbitration. George Duncan write about some of the legal issues raised by the consecration of land and building and explains that the legal protection given where consecration has taken place may lead to surprising results.
For more information on the topics raised here, please get in touch with George Duncan on +44 (0)20 7203 5054 or Ruth Williams on +44 (0)20 7203 5008.
