The commission's approach to regulatory supervision and monitoring of charities.
The commission’s monitoring work focuses on three main risks to charities:
- safeguarding beneficiaries
The primary purpose of monitoring is to monitor charities where there are concerns relating to serious non-compliance, or where it is believed that there is a significant risk of serious non-compliance within a charity or class of charities.
This work is conducted using the information and knowledge the commission has about the sector and abuse taking place in it, and through its experience of dealing with these concerns and with non-compliance.
Regulatory supervision and monitoring of charities is carried out in a proportionate way and targeted where intervention is most needed to stem abuse in the sector.
