-        International Charities have to adopt an Anti-Financial Crime Policy by 30th November 2022

-        International Charities have to have compliant governing documents by 31st December 2022

-        all other charities have to have compliant governing documents by 30th June 2023

Insurance sponsorship by Heritage Insurance Brokers

A big thank you to Heritage Insurance Brokers for renewing our Commercial Combined Insurance policy again for 2022/23.  This covers against the many risks that can occur when we organise public events, such as our recent Government House Fete and our Forums and general meetings.  All of our income to pay for the things we do for the Third Sector in Guernsey comes from sponsorship like this, so thank you again Heritage Insurance Brokers.
