Charities that are connected with non-charitable organisations: maintaining your charity’s separation and independence

Charities that are connected with non-charitable organisations: maintaining your charity’s separation and independence

The Commission is consulting on draft guidance for charities on their relationships with connected non-charitable organisations. The draft guidance consists of:

  • detailed guidance
  • at a glance summary
  • a checklist that charities can use

Charities can work with other charitable and non-charitable organisations to further their purposes and make a difference for their beneficiaries. Setting up or maintaining a close relationship with a connected non-charitable organisation can provide benefits to charities, but it can also expose charities to additional and sometimes significant risks.

The Commission has prepared this draft guidance to help trustees understand the risks and challenges that such relationships can bring and by setting out what they expect trustees to do to deal with them.

They welcome feedback, during the consultation, on how they can further improve the usability and effectiveness of this draft.

Heritage Lottery Fund – future direction and funding. Deadline 22nd March

HLF is consulting on its role, vision and funding priorities for the next five years.

A unique opportunity is now open for everyone who cares about the UK’s extraordinary heritage to give their views on HLF’s plans for the future.

They support projects that range from restoring natural landscapes to rescuing neglected buildings: from recording diverse community histories to providing life-changing training.

They now want to know what people think their role, vision and priorities should be as the UK’s biggest funder of heritage during the next strategic funding framework – the period from 2019-2024.

Comments are being invited on a proposed new approach including targeted funding campaigns, repayable loans and public involvement in decision-making, all of which could have a role over the next five years in ensuring the most effective use of National Lottery money to support the UK’s heritage.
