Briefing / NHS charities and public benefit (England and Wales)

06 October 2016 Anna Green
1 CPD hour

For an organisation to be charitable it must have only charitable purposes that are for the ‘public benefit’. If this is not the case, the organisation is not a charity. Trustees must also follow Charity Commission guidance and demonstrate that they have taken it into account.

For NHS charities there are a number of issues that require particular attention – this briefing runs through each in turn and includes an example approach to decision making.
