The new Chief Executive of the Charity Commission gave a speech at the start of October and she signalled that it would be "tougher, smarter, more agile and more proactive". There has been a press release today about the draft Bill which will give powers (and funding) to the regulator. The consultation process will be interesting.
Funding as well as powers included in the draft legislation will make the Charity Commission a more efficient, effective and agile regulator. The commission has welcomed today’s announcement of new funding to help it prioritise its monitoring and enforcement work, and the publication of the Draft Protection of Charities Bill. The regulator says the new funding and the powers included in the draft legislation will make it a more efficient, effective and agile regulator.
