Protecting Charities from harm
The Charity Commission launched an online toolkit for trustees on protecting their charity from potential harm and abuse on 10 November 2009, called 'Protecting charities from harm'. It is a practical guide to assist trustees.
The toolkit launched with its first chapter, Charities and terrorism, which provides key information on the UK’s counter-terrorism legislation and how it affects charities’ work.
Three further sections will be published over the coming year:
- Safeguarding charity funds;
- Safeguarding charities – people, property, reputation; and
- Case study archive (good practice examples from the sector for all chapters) and other sources of help.
For further information see the charity commission website, www.charitycommission.gov.uk.
