Impact of Equality Act 2010 on charities

A year-long study by University of Liverpool’s Charity Law and Policy Unit has found that charities could be left exposed and ill-equipped to address the complex legal questions generated by the Equality Act 2010. The research found that although charities are aware of the legislation they may not understand how it affects them. Non-compliance with the Act could lead to a charity considered to be not acting in the public benefit, resulting in loss of charitable status.
