Civilsociety.co.uk reports that charities will need to ensure that their governing document allows them to hold remote meetings if they want to continue to do so from 22 April. Since April 2020 charities have been able to hold meetings by telephone or online, even if their governing document does not allow this. This enabled many charities to continue to operate during lockdowns and when people were isolating or shielding due to Covid-19. However, now that most restrictions have been lifted the Charity Commission said that from 22 April charities need to comply with their governing document. Charities can make changes to their governing document and more guidance about the latest changes has been published about this on the regulator’s website.
