Dealing with wrongdoing and harm 2017-18

The Charity Commission’s work to detect and prevent wrongdoing and harm in charities in 2017-18.



Dealing with wrongdoing and harm is our annual report on our work to protect charities and deal with any wrongdoing or abuse. It was previously ‘Tackling abuse and mismanagement’.

This report includes:

  • lessons for trustees - issues that came up in our work in 2017-18 that all trustees should be aware of and make sure will not affect their charity
  • data on our work - what we did, reports we received and our use of compliance powers
