Event Information

The Kids Company Case JudgementImplications for charities and their trustees

Tuesday 18th May, 2021 |
This webinar will take place via zoom. Joining instructions to follow from our events team one day before the event.


Few cases involving a charity have attracted as much attention over recent years, both by the charity sector press and wider media, than that of the collapse of the well known charity Keeping Kids Company in 2015.

In February this year, the High Court issued its decision in respect of the case brought by the Official Receiver against the individual trustees, generating yet more media interest. Amongst the media reporting, however, there are some important lessons to be learned from the High Court judgement for all trustees and their charities.

This webinar will analyse and condense the practical implications of the judgement for the governance of all charities and what it means for the role of charity trustees in the 21st century.
