Webinar The Collapse of Kids Company: What Went Wrong! Webinar (Pre-order)


The collapse of Kids Company in August 2015 came as something of a shock to the outside world as a whole. Set up in 1996, it had come to be regarded as a leading charity in the provision of welfare services to children, and its founder and chief executive Camila Batmanghelidjh had achieved status and renown as a public figure.

Yet there had been signs for several years that all may not have been well with the organisation, and following its collapse five official investigations into aspects of its affairs were in train, including those being run by the police, the Charity Commission and the National Audit Office.

This webinar looks at the background to the collapse of Kids Company and some of the things which appear to have gone wrong, and will provide an update on what has been determined so far and the lessons to be learnt from these things.

In doing this, the webinar will consider some general themes and issues relevant to all charities, in particular issues of financial and risk management, risk reporting and trustee responsibilities.

It will also discuss the powers of the Charity Commission to intervene in a charity’s affairs, the circumstances in which those powers may be exercised, and its powers of enforcement when wrong-doing or mismanagement is uncovered. This will include discussion of the Commission’s important new powers under the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016, hastily put through Parliament and much discussed since.

This webinar will be of interest and benefit to all those advising charities and their trustees, to trustees themselves, as well as to chief executives, and other executives, managers and administrators working within charities.
