The cuts don't work

Wage bill savings at the Charity Commission have finally outweighed the direct costs of making a third of its staff redundant.  But Tania Mason wonders if it is a false economy.

A shameful saga

The real shame of the Big Society Network saga is the hundreds of genuine, effective charities that missed out on funding, says Tania Mason.

The Charity Commission chair's unsupportive approach to the sector poses a very real threat to public trust and confidence, says Tania Mason.

The sector's great and good were out in force last night for NCVO deputy chief Ben Kernighan's leaving drinks. As was the feelgood factor, says Tania Mason.

The “formalised systems of volunteer management” has been driven by legislation, safeguarding vulnerable adults and health and safety as well as leading umbrella organisation like the NCVO.

Challenge to Change's entry on the Register of Charities

The Charity Commission should not be allowing charities to become CIOs if their reporting is not up-to-date, says Tania Mason.



Do as I say, not as I do…

The habitual late filing of regulatory documents by William Shawcross’s charity puts the Charity Commission in an invidious position, says Tania Mason.



The CSV 'homepage' on the Commission's online register

The Charity Commission takes too long to make charities’ accounts public on its website, says Tania Mason. Maybe it should take a leaf out of Companies House’s book and charge a fee to see them.

The panda made me do it

Adrian Cockle from the online team at WWF  - @ade_WWF  - pitched this film on Twitter last week with the following comment: "Stop! Stop what you're doing *right now* and watch this. It'll make your day 142% better, I promise."

He was right!
