The Charities Act 2011 has now been enacted. It doesn't change anything - it
'...repeals and replaces the Recreational Charities Act 1958, the Charities Act 1993 and many of the provisions of the Charities Act 2006.'
There is no change in how charities will be governed and managed but all references to charity law should now be to this act. The Charity Commission says this
'It simply consolidates existing legislation and so does not affect the legal basis of the Commission's guidance in any way.
This move will certainly make it a bit easier to understand charity law.
