Faith Charities

Why haysmacintyre?

With increasing financial pressures and demands for transparency and accountability, it’s a challenging time for all faith-based charities. That’s why it is vital you have committed, specialist advisers who understand the issues you face and can make your difficult job as easy as possible. 
 
We support many faith organisations all over the UK and worldwide and work closely with them to ensure they stay strong, effective and up to date with good practice. We work with Church of England and Catholic Dioceses, Religious Orders and Diocesan Multi-Academy Trusts. In addition, we are growing our specialist team in advising other faith based charities including Muslim and Jewish charities. We build close relationships with our clients and they value our knowledge, enthusiasm and practical support.
