We saw in the July Charities & Social Business update how charity trustees can potentially incur personal liability (so that their personal assets may be at risk) if they do not take care in their contractual dealings with other parties. 

This briefing from Jae Carwardine and Nicola O'Connor (of our Fraud & Criminal Litigation Team) covers other scenarios of instances where charity trustees could actually incur criminal liability while voluntarily carrying out activities for their charities.  It would hopefully be a rare occurrence, and would be very harsh for volunteer charity trustees, but it is a risk that is there, and a risk that should be managed.
