Charities Act Review

29 Feb 2012 - 11:58 by michelle.foster

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts has been appointed by the Minister for the Cabinet Office to undertake the statutory review of the Charities Act 2006, and consider whether further changes to the legal and regulatory framework for charities are desirable.

There are 2 surveys that can be completed one for members of the public and one for charities.

The survey for charities asks for views on how well the Charities Act 2006 has worked and the future legal and regulatory framework for charities.

Responses will contribute to the evidence base for the Review. Lord Hodgson is particularly keen to hear about practical examples of where the legal and regulatory framework is working well, and where it is not working well and can be improved.

The questionnaire should take around 20-30 minutes to complete. Contributions to the review report will be anonymised if they are quoted, unless permission is given for the information to be made public.

From April, the Review will move into a new phase of assessing and analysing the evidence and considering options and recommendations. The aim is for the report of the review to be completed and laid in Parliament before the summer recess in 2012 (which is expected to be mid-July).
