Legal and Admin (UK)

On this section of the site we’d like to create a manual of legal, administrative, and organisational information for running Triratna projects. We can’t, however, do this on our own – we need your help!

We’re hoping that we can collectively produce a really helpful resource – that will benefit everyone and prevent each of our projects continually re-inventing the wheel.
