With greater media and public scrutiny of charities and their ‘failures’, the Charity Commission is taking a closer interest in the inner workings of charities.

Using their statutory powers to investigate deeply into a charity, the Inquiry can be both time consuming and costly. Ultimately it can be damaging to the charity’s work and reputation.

Aimed at charity advisors, this short webinar will assist you in navigating an Inquiry.

It is also ideal for charity trustees and managers who wish to better understand the areas of greatest risk and the penalties that the Commission can impose on them and the charity.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • What an Inquiry is and is not
  • The criteria leading to an Inquiry
  • The ‘risky areas’ of running a charity
  • Details of the role that the trustees and managers have during an Inquiry
  • What remedies and sanctions the Commission has
  • How to manage the publicity, during and afterwards
  • The limits on the Commission and the right of challenge to their findings

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Monday 17th June 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
