This document contains a list of legal aspects that need to be covered by most voluntary organisations.

Please note that the list is designed to be adjusted to suit your organisation and is not an exhaustive list of legal obligations or good governance expectations. Legal duties may alter as new laws are passed therefore the organisation may need to add to or adjust the list in the future.
