The Charity Commission, has published its annual report, showing the work it has undertaken over the past year to support the charity sector.

As well as providing guidance and support to help charities work more effectively, the Commission has focused on maintaining the high levels of trust and confidence the public has in charities.

“At a time when public trust and confidence in many institutions has dwindled, that for charities continued to grow this year,” said Dame Suzi Leather, chair of the Commission. “Our report shows the range of work we’ve undertaken during the year to ensure that charities are both well-regulated and supported in reporting on the impact of their work.”

Over the past year, the Commission opened over 33,000 individual advisory charity cases for charities with a combined total income of nearly £30 billion, registered 5,410 new charities and launched a new version of their online Register of Charities, to name just a few.

“We will continue to do everything we can to support the sector in the challenging months ahead,” Leather added.
