The report explains why we got involved with the charities, what regulatory concerns we assessed and what the impact of our case was.
The majority of the Commission’s compliance case work is handled by one of our Operations teams and this case was conducted by the Operations Monitoring Team. This deals with those cases that are not assessed against our risk framework as presenting the highest risk or involving the most serious concerns, but where a charity or an organisation awaiting registration, nonetheless needs monitoring through visits to the charity, record checks and/or verifying information that has been provided to us.
These reports help us explain what impact our case work has. While we cannot publish a report on every single Operational compliance case, we will publish reports involving cases that have attracted public interest and that highlight important lessons for charity trustees.
