Charities and Not-for-Profit

Helping those who help others

When your core mission is to create social value, adopting a commercial mind-set and approach does not always sit easily.  Acting for a wide range of charitable organisations, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations, we understand the challenges better than most.  In fact, many Albert Goodman partners and staff are charity trustees themselves, so speak from experience.

The charity and social enterprise sectors are rapidly changing landscapes bound by more regulatory and compliance requirements than most.  We fully understand the balance between the complex and regulatory accounting needs of your organisation and your need to be more business-like and ensure your sustainability, without changing your ethos or values.
