Final report of Charity Commission safeguarding taskforce

Charities submitted a total of 2,114 reports of serious incidents relating to safeguarding incidents or issues between 20 February and 30 September 2018.



In February 2018, the Charity Commission announced a suite of measures to help ensure charities, and the Commission, learned the wider lessons from safeguarding revelations involving Oxfam and other charities, and to strengthen public trust and confidence in charities.

One of these measures was the establishment of an internal taskforce. This report provides a summary of the findings emerging from the work of the taskforce.
