Guidance for trustees
Trustees should report serious incidents to the Commission as soon as they become aware of them. They may delegate this to employees or other representatives of the charity, but the responsibility rests with the charity’s trustees. Our guidance for trustees explains what incidents are serious and should be reported, how trustees can do this and what information we need.
Guidance for employees
If you are an employee that wants to blow the whistle on wrongdoing in a charity, with concerns about the proper administration of charities or of funds given or held for charitable purposes, then you need to read our guidance Complaints about Charities (CC47). You can also read our guidance which explains how you are protected under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998.
Guidance for volunteers
If you are a volunteer or otherwise connected to the charity, you should follow our guidance for members of the public about how to report your concerns to us.
