HR Support Services for the Third Sector

Effective HR management is crucial for the success of charities and non-profits. Your team members are invaluable assets, and retaining dedicated staff is essential for the continuous progress of your mission.

At Neathouse Partners, we understand the unique challenges faced by charities regarding HR, from compliance to volunteer management. Our experienced team provides dedicated HR consultants and lawyers with expertise in the non-profit sector. We become an integral part of your organisation, ensuring all HR needs are addressed efficiently. Our services come at a fixed, affordable monthly fee.

Some sector-specific requirements include:

  • Charitable organisations must register with the Charity Commission, report annual income, trustee changes and any significant incidents. Failure to report serious incidents could result in enforcement action.

  • Many charity staff work with vulnerable individuals, necessitating thorough vetting procedures for all personnel, including volunteers and trustees, to ensure the safety of those served.

  • Volunteers do not require employment contracts but may benefit from a volunteer agreement outlining their role, responsibilities and reimbursements. While volunteers should not be paid for their time, they can be reimbursed for incurred expenses such as travel, food, equipment and clothing.
