The Charity Commission blogs about the new Charities Act which comes into force this year (2016-17).
“The Cabinet Office published a timetable today that explains when the different sections of the new Charities Act are going to take effect. Many of the act’s provisions will only affect a relatively small number of charities and individuals.
However, it also makes a few significant changes - most notably on disqualification - of which all charities will need to be aware”, Nick Mott, Head of Policy Development Guidance and Review, says.
The blog looks at 5 ways the new act will affect charities, and their regulation including the consultation on how the commission will use its new powers.
Nick Mott writes:
“We’ll be issuing further updates and information about the provisions in the coming weeks and months - look out for the next edition of Charity Commission News and updates on Twitter and on GOV.UK.”
