The Charities Act 2011 sets out how all charities are registered, and the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016 provides the Charity Commission with greater powers to regulate them. If you need help navigating any aspect of the law and how it applies to your charitable organisation, our experienced team of solicitors can help. Get in touch to talk through your situation in more detail and we’ll explain how we work.

All charities in the UK are regulated by the Charity Commission. This is a non-ministerial government body, and it keeps a comprehensive register of charities including their annual accounts and financial information. The aim of this body is to allow the public feel confident providing financial support to charities through providing transparent insights into their governance.
