In this issue, we reflect on the appointment of a new minister for the charity sector following the General Election, and we have advice from the Charity Commission on how to keep your charity safe from the threat of cyber-attacks.

We also have details of approaching deadlines for Big Potential applications, and give an update on GDPR, highlighting some key considerations for charities.

In the first of a series of exclusive interviews, we catch-up with Chris Gray, Chief Executive at CHUF about the great work the charity is currently doing, the main challenges they’ve faced and their aspirations for the future.

Finally, we look ahead to our upcoming Charity Trustee panel discussion event by reflecting on the findings of a new report, that states the effectiveness of charities across the UK is under threat due to poor practice and planning in trustee recruitment.

If you have any questions about the topics covered in this Bulletin, please feel free to contact a member of our Charity and Not for Profit team. Full contact details are included on the back page.

Kind Regards,

The UNW Charity Group
