NALDIC’s Governing documents
Memorandum of Association (2004)
Articles of Association of NALDIC
As a charity, we must comply with:
- Charities Act 2011
which replaced most of the Charities Act 2006 and Charities Act 1992.
- Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016
which strengthens the powers of the Charity Commission.
- Trustees Acts 1925, 2000
the most recent Act concerns the powers of trustees regarding investments and delegation.
- Charity Commission regulation.
The Commission has a full list of guidance that explains what charites ‘must’ and ‘should’ do. ‘Must’ means something is a legal or regulatory requirement or duty that trustees must comply with. ‘Should’ means something is good practice that the commission expects trustees to follow and apply to their charity or be able to explain why not.
- the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) for charity accounting
published by the Charity Commission and requires compliance (depending on annual income) on the submission of annual returns, reports and accounts.
laws on trading, political activities and fundraising

In addition to the above, charitable companies (those incorporated as a company limited by guarantee) must comply with provisions in the Companies Acts 1985, 1989, 2006. Additional requirements include filing details of trustees as directors at Companies House.
