Leading business recovery specialists highlight issues faced by charities in new white paper


Lynn Gibson-1 (1)Award-winning business recovery and insolvency firm, Gibson Hewitt, is offering out advice to trustees of charities in a new white paper, which aims to highlight the issues facing their organisations.

Prepared by the experienced team at Gibson Hewitt, the eight-page report entitled The Changing Landscape Ahead for Charity Trustees looks into the latest research from various sources to identify upcoming problems that charities may face.

Within it Lynn Gibson, Managing Director of the firm, looks at issues such as mergers and acquisitions, Brexit, reductions in public funding and changes to legislation, sharing her thoughts on how these might affect the success and liquidity of charities in the future.

Drawing upon her experience of business recovery over the last three and a half decades, Lynn hopes to provide important notes and advice to trustees as they face uncertain times.

Speaking about the white paper, she said: “In the last few years organisations across the UK have faced a number of additional pressures, some from legislation and others as a result of the changing nature of charitable giving and the organisations that rely upon it.

“As the white paper shows, trustees have a lot of things that they need to consider in the years ahead and it is vital that they are prepared for this and that they are able to meet their responsibilities.”

Gibson Hewitt has previously assisted a number of charities, providing proactive advice on a range of issues from redundancy through to insolvency proceedings.

“Charities play an important role in many communities, so it is vital that they protect themselves by keeping informed about the latest issues affecting them. We hope this white paper will prove useful to them in this regard,” added Lynn.
