New legal resources for NFP organisations

  • by Kate Bowman
  • March 9, 2022

Justice Connect’s Not-for-profit Law program provides free and affordable legal supports for not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises. Recently they launched a new website which makes accessing the more than 300 free resources they make available even easier.

It is important your organisation meets the relevant legal requirements for operation and good governance. Managing volunteers is core business for the community organisations within our network and many rely on fundraising and grants to operate programs.

By understanding the legal issues relating to the engagement and management of volunteers, volunteer involving organisations can make sure their relationship with volunteers is meaningful, while being managed respectfully and safely.

A range of laws are applicable to fundraising and events, and grants come with significant administrative and contractual obligations.

There is so much to consider – insurance and risk management, work health and safety, discrimination and privacy, communications on websites and social media. The NFP Law website covers it all.

Click here to go to the NFP Law website and take some time to explore their resources.
