ENSURING CHARITIES ‘DO IT PROPERLY’.  Maintaining Standards in the Charity Sector. Is the new research report from Community matters

Launched today on 5th October 2021. The report has a forward by Rachael Maskell MP, Shadow Civil Society Minister and an introduction by Michael O’Toole CEO of Cambridgeshire Community Foundation and previously the Crown Representative for the Voluntary & Community Sector.

The report looks at some of the implications of the withdrawal of the Charity Commission endorsement scheme some years ago and considers that in the last 5 years serious incident reports reported to the Charity Commission have nearly tripled

The report also shows that early identification of issue issues and problems reduce the significance of the consequences and suggests that there is clear evidence of the benefits of quality assurance in the charitable and not for profit sector.
