Military Charities

Committed to service

Ensuring good governance and managing trustees is a vital and demanding role. Our highly-experienced team – including current and ex-serving personnel, relatives of force members and charity trustees – can help you whether your military charity is established or just getting off the ground.

Advice shaped by experience

We understand the complex issues and questions arising from the Charities Act 2006. Our experience covers restructuring, incorporation and amalgamation of military charities, as well as the establishment of trading subsidiaries

Military charities often face frequent changes in trustees, so a sound governance structure and trustees who understand their roles and responsibilities are essential. We provide governance reviews and training to help everyone work more effectively.
