Charities & Insolvency – a brief guide

Our Insolvency Partner Richard Gardiner recently had the pleasure of delivering a talk to the staff of the Big Lottery Fund about insolvency.  It is a position that many charities and trustees are faced with and the majority of them will not be knowledgeable about the options and the consequences.

His presentation covered –

·         the general background of insolvency

·         the role of the insolvency practitioner

·         the reasons why charities get into difficulty

·         the issues that charities and trustees face

·         the potential consequences if it all goes wrong

·         and finally how he can help charities to deal with any insolvency issues
