The Commission has appointed an Interim Manager to The Rav Chesed Trust, registered charity number 803758.


The Charity Commission has appointed an Interim Manager to The Rav Chesed Trust. The appointment comes as part of the regulator’s inquiry into the charity, which began in July 2015.

The inquiry is examining the administration and financial management of the charity and whether the trustees have put the charity’s funds at risk. A statement about the investigation is available on GOV.UK.

The Commission has now appointed Adam Stephens of Smith & Williamson LLP as Interim Manager of the charity to the exclusion of the charity’s trustees. His tasks include taking over the general administration and management of the charity and securing the charity’s property.

The Interim Manager was appointed on 24 February 2017.

The Commission’s investigation continues. It is the Commission’s policy, after it has concluded an inquiry, to publish a report detailing what issues the inquiry looked at, what actions were undertaken as part of the inquiry and what the outcomes were. Reports of previous inquiries are available on GOV.UK.

The charity’s registered number is 803758.
