Charity automatic disqualification rules: prepare for changes to the law:    On 1 August 2018 the law is changing to extend the scope of who will be disqualified from running a

charity. Make sure you read the guidance and apply for a waiver if needed.

The rules about automatic disqualification for trustees are changing, more reasons are being added and the rules will also apply to some charity senior manager positions (chief executives and finance directors - and those in equivalent roles).

New reasons for disqualification include being in contempt of court, being named under particular anti-terrorism legislation or being on the sex offenders register.

Make sure you read the guidance for charities to help you understand what is changing. This guide also includes a handy disqualifying reasons table that you can download
