Anglican Diocese Briefing 2016
Welcome to the first issue of our Anglican Diocese Briefing.
We go to press as we prepare to welcome delegates to our specialist seminar for the sector
on 12 January 2017, where we’ll be discussing many of the issues highlighted here in our briefing. To find out more or register click here. We hope you’ll find plenty inside to whet your appetite and stimulate your thoughts.
Adam Halsey, our Head of Faith Charities and one of the foremost advisers in the sector, opens with his take on the broad sweep of challenges facing Anglican dioceses today. We’re also pleased to bring you:
• insight from Howard Dellar, of law firm Lee Bolton Monier-Williams, on how the academies agenda is affecting relationships between dioceses and local authorities;
• Tom Brain, our Senior Charities Manager with a detailed look at how dioceses have fared transitioning to FRS 102 and the new Charities SORP;
• Barry Newbury, of Epoch Wealth Management with practical guidance on how charities and dioceses can formulate effective investment policies; and
• haysmacintyre’s Nick Bustin writing on the new Apprenticeship Levy, which takes effect in April 2017.
My own advice on why all charities need an anti-fraud policy and what it should cover, wraps up our briefing.
Our aim with this briefing is to draw on our own expertise and that of our professional network to pull together practical information and advice, specifically tailored for Anglican dioceses. We welcome your views on the contents, and any suggestions you have on what you would like us to cover in future.
