Shortly after this title's launch in September 1994, Lord Allen of Abbeydale added a foreword which ended as follows:

In  the  light of all these  changes, it  is  very  fitting  to be able  to  have recourse to authoritative and  clear  explanations of various  aspects of charity law  and  practice  which  are up-to-date, and  will be kept  up-to¬ date. This is what this publication achieves. It gives expert  guidance for example on how to set up a charity and,  in a substantial section, on  the responsibilities which  fall on trustees in running a charity. It gives advice in the tricky areas of fund-raising, investment, taxation  and  trading. Nor does  it fail to explore the possibility of difficulties arising  with  Brussels. With its comprehensive cover, it is a publication which will be primarily of value   to  practitioners, but  it  is  not  too  much   hope  that  some  of  the information and  advice  to be found in its pages  will percolate  to a wider audience.

Over the years, which have seen many more changes of law and practice and over 60 releases, the editors have done their utmost to ensure that the work remains authoritative and up-to-date.  The editorial team remains: Douglas Cracknell (General Editor); Pesh Framjee; Adrian Longley; and Francesca Quint.
