Fifth edition 

This guide is designed to be a key reference source for governing body members, senior finance staff and fund trustees as it considers best practice in relation to governance and strategic management of NHS charitable funds.  

Staff responsible for the day-to-day administration of NHS charitable funds will find that the guide includes support guidance to support them in their roles. 

This new edition replaces the 2015 edition and whilst it retains the underlying principles, structure and content that will be familiar to past readers, it has been fully updated to take into account changes in the NHS and the charities sector since its predecessor. 

The guide provides practitioners with a succinct summary of the key issues affecting NHS charities with signposts to sources of more detailed guidance for those who want to delve into a subject in more detail. 

Whilst the guide focuses on the legislative framework in England and Wales and the regulatory requirements of the Charity Commission for England and Wales, where possible, reference is made to the equivalent legislation and guidance in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Most of the practical guidance is relevant across the UK.
