The Charity Commission has started a new blog this week to speak directly to the public interested in charities about its work.

The first blog is from Chairman William Shawcross about changes at the commission over 2016.

William Shawcross writes:

This new blog will allow the commission to update regularly on our work, address topics of interest and communicate how we are becoming a more effective regulator. Over the coming months, a variety of voices will discuss a range of issues, giving their perspective on the commission’s work.

The blog discusses the commission’s engagement with 165,000 charities and their 1 million trustees, and how the commission has transformed its work after a 50% fall in budget. It goes on to talk about new powers in the Charities Bill, a more digital approach to working with charities designed to save time and money, and a new focus on serious regulatory work.

You can sign up for updates as new blogs are published via GOV.UK.
