Charity Law in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Muman v Nagasena
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 01 July 1999

    "Charity proceedings" are defined in section 33(8) as meaning proceedings in any court (so that includes the County Court) in England or Wales brought under the court's jurisdiction with respect to charities or brought under the court's jurisdiction with respect to trusts in relation to the administration of a trust for charitable purposes. That is to prevent charities from frittering away money subject to charitable trusts in pursuing litigation relating to internal disputes.

    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 18 May 1972

All religious services that open their doors to the public may, in an age of religious tolerance, claim to perform some spiritual service to the general public.

  • Solad Sakander Mohammed and Another v Boston Mohammed & Others
    • Chancery Division
    • 23 March 2018

    Secondly, in so far as property-based rights are concerned, the Registered Proprietors do not hold the land for their own benefit. They are bound to permit the Mosque to be occupied and enjoyed as a place for the public worship of Allah and for preaching and teaching the precepts and teachings of the Muslim faith. It is, accordingly, to be open to the public who wish to enter for the purpose of enjoying the benefits of the charity.
