This chapter focuses on England and Wales, the progenitor of charity law in a common law context. It analyzes contemporary data and trends, classifying the role of charities and other nonprofits. Also, it evaluates the government/charity relationship in relation to the institutional and other structures put in place to bridge the gap between the parties, and with regard to the effect of charity law reform outcomes. The chapter then discusses the changes introduced by the coalition government and its “Big Society” policy. It categorizes the main components in the legal framework for charitable trading; assess the related case law; and considers the scale and nature of changes taking place in the government/charity relationship at a time when severe economic pressures are forcing the pace in terms of government withdrawal from its position as the main public benefit service provider.

Keywords:   England, Wales, charity law, Big Society, nonprofits, coalition government
