Religious Institutes

As a religious institute you need to keep up with changes in the not-for-profit sector but, with extra complexities like lay trustees, managing the charity and the institute and handling your congregations needs; a specialist advisor can make this tricky job easier.
Advice and support for religious charities

Advice and support for religious organisations

Faith-based charities (whether Catholic, Church or England, Dioceses, a faith-based school, or other faith-based charity) come to us for guidance on how to handle risk, manage cashflow and investments, and stay on top of their accounting needs. And we can advise religious dioceses on how best to manage ‘Parish Share’ donations, understand the implications of charity status (charitable trust or CIO), support with safeguarding data and deal with property-related issues and investments.

Whoever you are, come and tell us about your situation – and how it could be better. Our service flexes to help with everything from the practical to the personal. Because you put your hearts into what you do, we put ours into helping you do it.
