Decision made by the Charity Commission on 25 September 2007.
The commission reviewed its decision not to register Odstock Private Care Limited as a charity. It had rejected the application because the organisation did not provide public benefit. The organisation submitted further information, but the commission confirmed its view that there was insufficient public benefit as people in poverty could not access services.
This decision is significant because it considered the public benefit of an organisation that charges fees, and the potential for private benefit.
