Where the Charity Commission takes enforcement action

Details

The commission’s priority is to ensure that trustees meet their legal requirements and obligations.

The commission will check that the requested actions have been taken. In some cases the commission may agree an action plan for a charity and follow this up to ensure it has been implemented.

Charities that fail to provide evidence of their activity and existence by submitting accounts, annual returns or annual updates may be referred for enforcement action or removed from the register of charities.
