From 1 August 2018 changes to the automatic disqualification rules mean that there will be more restrictions on who can run a charity.
For most charities, taking some simple steps to update recruitment and appointment systems is all that will be needed to prepare for the rule changes.
Charities can use this guidance to find out:
- what the current disqualification rules are, and what they mean in practice
- what the changes are
- what steps they should take to prepare for the changes
- about waivers
This guidance will be updated when the new disqualification rules become law.
We’ve also produced separate guidance for individuals about automatic disqualification and how to apply for a waiver.
