Cy-près variations of charitable trust in NI

New on the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland’s website is guidance on Cy-près schemes, which are legal documents allowing the Commission to amend the terms of a charitable trust, where the original intention of the donor can no longer be carried out.

While CCNI is now accepting requests for such schemes, they cannot finalise one until a further CCNI statutory provision is made, hopefully by late 2013.
