MacRoberts Loves Charities - Summer 2019

In our latest Charities & Third Sector Newsletter, we look at what your charitable organisation needs to know when setting up partnerships with commercial organisations and the options available. We also look at recent changes in employment legislation and what you need to be aware of in terms of wages, statutory payments and compensation for discrimination.

We are now nearly one year on from the Social Enterprise World Forum which took place in Edinburgh last September – how far has social enterprise in Scotland come? We are also pleased to share details of our upcoming breakfast seminar on social enterprise business structures – we hope you can join us in Edinburgh on 21 August.

Also, for the charities involved in fundraising, the newly issued revised Code of Fundraising Practice, issued on 6 June 2019, will be essential reading. We highlight the main changes.

We hope you find this edition interesting, and would be delighted to welcome any feedback or comments you have - simply contact our team directly, or click here.
