Commission Announces Launch of Charity Review Project

A new project has been launched to help charities improve their governance systems.

Sam Younger, chief executive of the Charities Commission, announced the project which will give 25 charities the chance to take part in a free review conducted by an ICSA member.  This will enable the lucky charities to receive free guidance to help them improve their governance.

This, in turn, will help the commission identify areas where new or better advice may be applicable, by anonymously collating the results of the reviews into a report.

Charities registered within the last two years will be given priority.

During Sam’s speech he said that the project ‘will not only benefit the charities directly involved, but also shed light on wider trends within the sector, including on any risks or weaknesses that the Commission and the sector may need to address.’

He also hopes that ‘these projects will provide a model for future review initiatives led by the sector itself.’
