For charities and non-profit organisations, and their trustees, life can be as commercial and as complicated as it is for
commercial companies and their directors. In fact, much of the law and regulation relating to charities and non-profit organisations

the Housing Corporation; the complications of unincorporated associations and clubs. Many organisations struggle for funding
and may not be able to dedicate as much resources to reducing claims exposure as they would ideally like.
