Bates Wells advises on updated NCVO guidance document

Bates Wells has provided pro bono legal expertise to the NCVO for its updated guidance document on the current legal status of voluntary work.  


At a time when the definition of what represents a volunteering opportunity has become the source of confusion for many charities, this guidance, entitled “Volunteers and the Law”, has been revised in order to provide additional clarity on the legal rights and obligations that underpin this area.

The legal aspects of NCVO’s guidance were updated by Lucy McLynn (Head of Employment), Emma Dowden-Teale (Partner), Chetal Patel (Senior Associate) and Joanna Howard (Solicitor).
