Public benefit assessments on sports and recreation charities
Following a discovery by the Charity Commission that 35% of sports and recreation charities were unaware of the public benefit requirement, it is set to carry out four public benefit assessments on this sector of charities.
The four sports and recreation charities chosen have been named as Wigan Leisure & Culture Trust, the Tintagel Memorial Playing Fields Association, Birmingham City FC Football in the Community and the Radlett Lawn Tennis & Squash Club. They will all have to show they have charitable purposes and operate for the public benefit, as required by the Charities Act 2006.
The tests are intended to help raise awareness and understanding of public benefit.
