Changes to charity law rules on automatic disqualification of trustees/senior managers

Via VAL

Although this is not strictly speaking a migration issue, many orgs who help refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants in Leeds are charities, and will therefore be affected by these changes to the rules.

The Charity Commission is changing the rules that automatically disqualify people from acting as trustees or senior managers. The criteria is being broadened and will cover more people than it does currently. Some of these people will be trustees/ senior managers already working in the sector. From 1 August, anyone who is automatically disqualified under the new rules will usually be committing an offence if they continue in their role unless they have applied for and been successful in getting a waiver.

See the attached briefing note by Community Action Bradford & District for more details of what you need to know and what you need to do
