Charity Accounts

Our charity accounts & charity audits department is staffed by a dedicated team of specialist accountants, headed by Jen Richardson who has over seventeen years experience of working in the charity sector both as a volunteer and as an advisor.

Additionally, Jen has a Diploma in charity accounting and is a member of the ACCA charities technical advisory group meaning she has an abundance of both practical and technical experience to draw on.

Each year Ward Goodman hosts the Dorset Charities Conference. This event not only features a wealth of sector expert speakers who provide a series of informative presentations but it also provides local charities with the perfect opportunity to connect with leading sector suppliers.

In addition we work closely as advisers with a number of not for profit and community organisations in Dorset such as CASCs, chambers of trade and “friends of” larger charities.
We also provide training seminars for trustees and finance staff on technical matters such as governance and the new SORP.
