Seminar for Islamic CharitiesFaith in Good Governance

Saturday 28th March, 2020 |
Khidmat Centre, Spencer Road, Bradford

We live in an increasingly regulated environment where the expectations placed on charities and community organisations are greater than ever. It is important that charities pursue and maintain the highest standards of governance and operation. The seminar will consider some of the key issues and address how organisations can avoid some of the risks arising from failures in governance.

The morning will be chaired by Zulfi Karim DL, chair of the Council of Mosques and is presented in association with Wrigleys Solicitors.
