We are delighted to invite you to our annual Charity Law Update in conjunction with DSG Chartered Accountants, taking place on Tuesday 28 March 2017 in Liverpool. This seminar will provide charity trustees and senior managers with an update on legal and accounting developments affecting charities that have taken place over the previous year.

Stephen Claus and Graeme Hughes from our Charity Law team will provide an informative round up of legal developments in the voluntary sector, including:

  • The Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 and the new regulatory powers granted to the Charity Commission;
  • The new regulatory landscape for charity fundraising, including an update on the establishment of the new Fundraising Regulator; and

Lee Jefcott, Partner in our employment team and Shara Pledger, Solicitor at Latitude Law will look at significant future trends which will reshape the world of work including:

Employing foreign workers

  • Brexit - What is known and unknown, specific issues for sectors and sponsors
  • Sponsor licensing - new fees, rules and regulations

The gig economy and employment law

The gig economy has become a catch all term for anything from plumbers, Uber taxi drivers to freelance professionals but…

  • What does this "uber- flexibility" really mean?
  • How far can businesses move away from the "traditional" model of permanent employment?
  • What are the risks and benefits?

The seminar will conclude with an opportunity for attendees to ask any questions they may have for our speakers.

You are invited to take part in Brabners Charity Challenge which takes place on Friday 30 June and will be based in Keswick in the Lake District.

We are inviting teams of three to six people to take part in this fun challenge in support of our charity of the year for 2017.

The Charity Challenge Course

The challenge consists of three stages; kayaking, cycling and fell-walking.

Kayaking

The first part of the challenge involves around an hour of kayaking on Derwentwater.

Cycling

Participants will then move straight on to the cycling stage of the challenge. This year, there will be a choice of two routes - an expert route or a shorter more 'scenic' route.

The expert route is 47km and involves 1000 metres of climbing.

The scenic route is 23km and involves 500 metres of climbing. 

Fell Walk

The challenge will conclude with a walk of the Coledale Round. The Coledale Round is a 10 mile loop starting and finishing at the Braithwaite Institute. It includes 5 Wainwright Mountains - Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail and Outerside and over 1,178 metres of climbing. For more details, please click here

In true Charity Challenge tradition, the day will finish at the Braithwaite Institute with a BBQ, drinks and the presentation of prizes. 

Are you up for the challenge?
