Consultation description

This consultation is about strengthening the Charity Commission’s powers to act where there is abuse of a charity and/or non-compliance with charity law, in particular where there is misconduct or mismanagement or risk to charity property, and considering whether the criteria for disqualification from acting as a charity trustee should be extended.

The aim is to ensure more effective regulation of charities by tackling malpractice and to support public trust and confidence in charities, the regulator and the regulation of the charity sector.
