  • The Charity Commission has published a plan setting out its strategic priorities for the next three years. The plan focuses on:
    • protecting charities from abuse or mismanagement;
    • enabling trustees to run their charities effectively;
    • encouraging greater transparency and accountability in charities; and
    • operating as an efficient, expert regulator with sustainable funding.
    The Commission aims to meet these priorities by making better use of data so resources can be focused on higher risk issues, preventing problems arising through more and better targeted guidance, improving the registration process, protecting the integrity of the register of charities, and improving the efficiency of the Charity Commission's business processes.

    Furthermore, the strategic plan makes clear that that the Charity Commission will consult on proposals for alternative funding options, including the possibility of imposing a levy on charities themselves.
