Lord Grade, chair of the Fundraising Regulator, has today announced the eight people who will make up its board.
The former chief executive of the Charity Commission suggested yesterday that the large charities team at the regulator might have spotted red flags in Kids Company’s accounts, if budget cuts had not forced it to be scrapped.
Many trustees of small charities don't understand their legal responsibilities and just accept whatever the chief executive says, a charity leader told a Parliamentary group yesterday.
Small charities could be cut off from their supporters because people will use the Fundraising Preference Service without thinking of local organisations, according to a document handed to the chair of the FPS working group.
I am not against more effective regulation but the driver for this regulation must be based on sounder footings than just to appease the media because the media will be back with negative stories regardless.
A total of 4,753 charities are currently late filing their accounts or annual returns with the charity Commission, according to figures published on the Register of Charities.
The Times today accused Friends of the Earth of “altering documents” and “deceiving” the Charity Commission, but the regulator said its guidance had not been contravened, and the charity described the story as "nonsense".
The Conservative chair of the Commons Health Select Committee has warned the government that its plans for anti-advocacy clauses in charitable grants could have “serious consequences” for public health.
The Charity Commission has announced that people can watch its next public meeting online via a live video stream.
