Confidence in charities
A recent survey by the Charity Commission (CC) has found levels of public trusts and confidence in charities has not increased since 2008.
The CC asked 1,150 adults to rate their trust in a range of organisations from 1 (no trust at all) to 10 (complete trust). The mean result was 6.6 for charities, the same as in 2008.
Interestingly, the survey also found that the impact of the CC is perceived as very limited with 86% of respondents saying they had not noticed positive effects of the Charity Commission’s work while 95% said they had not noticed negative effects of the Charity Commissions work.
The results suggest that charities will need to become more transparent in reporting how donations reach the end cause in order to increase public confidence. For more information on
