Charites are often run by entrepreneurial, focussed, and enthusiastic people who have strong views about the work of the charity and how it should be done.

This, together with the pressures brought by the nature of its work and funding constraints, can create an environment ripe for disagreement that can escalate into a full-blown dispute.

Such disputes are damaging for the people involved, the charity, the beneficiaries of its work and the sector as a whole.

This short webinar will discuss the steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of a dispute, and how best to resolve one, should it arise.
