How will the new Charities Act affect your Charity?

The Cabinet Office has published a timetable that explains when the different sections of the new Charities Act are going to take effect. Many of the act’s provisions will only affect a relatively small number of charities and individuals. However, it also makes a few significant changes - most notably on disqualification - of which all charities will need to be aware”, Nick Mott, Head of Policy Development Guidance and Review, says. The blog by the Charity Commission looks at 5 ways the new act will affect charities, and their regulation including the consultation on how the commission will use its new powers.
