Wrigleys advise specifically on governance and structures for charities

Much of the advice given by the Wrigleys Charity and Social Economy team relates to the life cycle of an organisation from formation to growth and, unfortunately on occasions, dissolution.

Governance

Once the structure is in place, we aim to continue as trusted advisers to your organisation through its life cycle, giving advice on good governance, day to day operations and strategy for growth. Advice to your organisation and trustees or directors may include:

  • Governance health checks
  • Trustee training - please download our brochure from the Downloads tab above
  • Charity Administration service
  • Charity law advice
  • Compliance and regulation
  • Collaborations
  • Dissolution
  • Mergers
  • Outsourcing and sub contracting
  • Social media management

Structures

Of course there are numerous structures available, each with associated advantages and disadvantages:

  • Charitable company, trust or unincorporated association
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisation ("CIO")
  • Not-for-profit company such as a company limited by guarantee
  • Community Interest Company ("CIC")
  • Co-operative Society
  • Community Benefit Society (CBS)

We help clients and professional advisers to choose the most suitable form and give individuals guidance on the implications for them as trustees or directors.
