Growing Compassionate Communities Launch

Coles Miller Solicitors has helped to create a new charity being launched at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday May 22 2018.

Growing Compassionate Communities has a wide remit but its primary focus will be on helping people with dementia to enjoy a better quality of life and greater social inclusion.

The charity is the brainchild of Corfe Mullen clergyman Peter Jones. Mid Dorset and North Poole MP Michael Tomlinson will launch it at the Houses of Parliament.

Coles Miller Partner Anthony Weber provided the organisers with legal advice and liaised with the Charity Commission. He applied successfully for Growing Compassionate Communities to be granted charitable status.

“Initially, Growing Compassionate Communities is concentrating its efforts on people with dementia but we would also like to help many other people who have been socially excluded,” said Mr Weber, who has become the charity’s treasurer.

“At first this wide remit made the application for charitable status a little more complicated but I am delighted that we were able to help the charity to achieve a successful outcome.”

Applying for charitable status is a specialist area of the law. Coles Miller helps charities with legal advice through its Wills and Probate Department. The firm has offices in Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Broadstone and Wimborne.
