Charity Commission Consults On Its Spending Cuts

The Charity Commission has launched a consultation on how it should cut its spending by a third after the government’s announcement that its budget would be cut from £29.3 million to £21.3 million by 2014/15.

The consultation asks whether:

  • The commission should adopt a light-touch approach to registering charities
  • It should investigate charities only where large amounts of money are at risk
  • It should stop giving one-to-one advice to individual charities.

This is the first stage of a review process by the Charity Commission and the changes will be place from May 2011.
