E133 - Is There An Alternative Charity Governance Model With Philip Kirkpatrick

[talking about the Assured Unitary Governance model] “ sense [is] that the current system, especially in the large operating charities... the whole system is unfair on trustees, for these kinds of charity, but that doesn't mean that this model could only work for these kinds of charity. I think it could work for any kind of charity that has a significant paid executive.” - Philip Kirkpatrick

In this episode we speak with Philip Kirkpatrick about his work as a solicitor for the charity sector, we speak about the current charity governance model, and the pros and cons of this, as well as a possible alternative.

The challenges for trustees and charities recruiting them, have been discussed on this podcast before, but in this episode we will, for the first time, explore some of the legal implications for trustees and ask the question is there a better way for charities to run, to ensure effective charity governance a drive forward a new era of charity impact.

This episode is brought to you by our platinum sponsor Charity People.
