Educational Trusts & Charities

The education and charity work of this department are heavily intertwined and the strong links we have forged with senior officials at the Charity Commission greatly assist both practice streams.

Our specialist team provides pragmatic advice on their trusts for a variety of educational institutions. This advice extends far beyond the interpretation of the underlying constitutional documents and covers the following:

  • Amendments and trust modifications
  • Application of income
  • Charity law application
  • Constitution
  • Governance and Trustees
  • Legacies and fundraising
  • Registration
  • Restricted funds including permanent endowment
  • Land and property
