“The internet has changed the way we interact and is a core part of everyday life for most of us”, Paula Sussex, Chief Executive at the Charity Commission, says.

Paula Sussex writes:

“The commission is already putting more of our services online in a way that is better focussed on the customer, like our new registration service. Eventually each charity will have its own self-service portal where it can update its own information. We also hope to communicate better online using different tools such as live-streaming, video and webinars.”

The blog looks at 4 ways the new digital plans will affect charities, their regulation, and the public.
