Organising church events
All entertainment events are subject to the Health and Safety at Work Act. These are the key points to consider when planning and hosting church events and activities.
A church called the DAS Legal Advice Helpline after a wall on neighbouring land was causing damage to a shed on the church’s property. The advisor informed the church that they could make a claim on their policy.
DAS assessed the claim and a solicitor was appointed to investigate the church’s case. Following legal representation, the neighbour accepted responsibility for the wall and agreed to pay to put right the damage caused by their wall.
DAS paid for all of the legal costs.
