Many organisations are facing change and having to make difficult decisions in relation to their workforce and their future.
The new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act: what does it mean for charities and social enterprises?
The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 introduces some important new rules. These rules are relevant to you if you:
Under the Places of Worship (Enfranchisement) Act 1920, the leasehold owner of a building used as a place of worship has, in certain circumstances, a right to buy the freehold of that building. Traditionally, the criteria under the Act have been interpreted narrowly, with the result being that in practice few leaseholders have been able to benefit from the right. A High Court decision in May 2020 has potentially changed this, by applying a broader interpretation of one of the key qualifying criteria. Faith charities with leasehold property might wish to look into whether the right to buy might apply to them.
Small grants of between £100-£1,000 are available to small charities who are temporarily struggling but otherwise viable.
The Small Charities Coalition has been awarded £50,000 from the Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation to make available as small grants to organisations who are temporarily struggling, but otherwise viable.
Particular areas of interest:
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and Improvement, and Public Health England (PHE) are inviting applications from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to join the VCSE health and wellbeing fund Starting Well.
