Report a serious incident

Use this service if you are a trustee of a registered charity and you want to report a serious incident in your charity.

We will let you know when we receive your report and assess how you are dealing with the incident. We will contact you again if we:

• need more information about the incident
• have to give you regulatory advice and guidance
• have to use legal powers to protect your charity
