Charity Law, Governance and Risk Management
London, Saturday 14th December 201
In an increasingly regulated environment, and with greater expectations of charitable community institutions from multiple stakeholders, there is a need for mosques and community centres to pursue and maintain the highest standards in their operations and management, from an ethical and legal point of view.
This program has two important sessions, one on Charity Law (morning) and one on Risk Management (afternoon). Both will look at governance as part of the sessions.
This session essentially looks at:
- A broad insight and understanding of charity law
- Legal forms of charity
- Analysis of real case studies
- Roles and responsibilities of trustees
- Understanding the Charity Commission and its standards
- Keeping checks and balances (Compliance)
This topic covers ‘Risk management’, including governance. As such the sessions will touch on:

- Risk identification
- Risk analysis
- Risk communication
- Workshops and case study analysis
1-day / 9.30am to 6pm
