Responding to a compliance case or investigation by the Charity Commission

In this 90-minute-long evening session, we will present interactive case studies into fictional Charity Commission compliance cases, and investigations into charities’ activities.

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  • the Charity Commission’s statutory duties and powers, and new expanded powers under the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 to give official warnings and disqualify individuals as charity trustees;
  • an overview of the Serious Incident Reporting regime; and
  • the potential for public disclosure of correspondence with the Commission, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
