The new Act radically overhauls existing law, setting out a modern framework for charities and not-for-profit organisations. This new Blackstone's Guide provides the full text of the long-awaited Charities Act, together with an expert chapter by chapter commentary. The commentary logically follows the structure of the Act, and provides a careful analysis of its key changes, notably: the expansion of heads of charitable purpose; measures to facilitate charity merger;
new support for charity trustees (eg, relief from liability for honest mistakes); and the introduction of a new independent Charity Appeal Tribunal.

The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer timely and expert commentary on the meaning and effects of the legislation, plus a copy of the Act itself. The Guides are a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.
