Charities & other community organisations

Providing assurance and peace of mind

Running a charity or a community organisation is never easy, given the constant demand for your time and effort, it’s hard to know where you’re going to get funding from, and how.

Accounting for third sector organisations requires expertise and a deep understanding of the sector.

Our dedicated third sector team, led by director Heather O’Driscoll and manager Louise Baker, can provide support to your team to help you run your organisation, and contribute to making it a success for you and the communities you are supporting.

– We’ll provide assurance and peace of mind, through our audits and independent examinations.

– We’ll provide a full range of services, from bookkeeping, management accounting, financial planning and budgeting, to dedicated payroll and VAT support.

– We can handle your fundamental obligations, giving you peace of mind that area’s taken care of.
– Whatever aspect you need help with, we’re there for you.


Charity accounting is particularly difficult to get to grips with because of all the rules and regulations that go into it. But we’re well versed in the trials and tribulations, as well as all the different elements that go into making them a success. So, while you know your organisation, we know what makes charity accounting run smoothly and the processes needed to keep your finances running smoothly. Our team of specialists can also guide you through the legislative processes and governance necessary to run a charity. We’ll help you stay compliant with the Charities Act, Charities Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) and other legislation so you can make sure you’re complying with the law and can spend your time doing what you do best – helping your beneficiaries.

“We have been supported by Waltons with accountancy and audit services since 1986. As good governance is so essential for a registered charity, it is vital that our Trustees can rely on the rigour and independence of the annual audit, to ensure that the organisation is well run and financially sound.”
