We publish reports of our investigations and regulatory casework so that other charities can learn lessons from what has happened.

Our regulatory activity

The vast majority of charities encounter few problems. However, where there is a serious threat or risk to a charity’s beneficiaries, services, assets or reputation we can help resolve this either by providing regulatory advice and guidance to the trustees or where necessary, by using our legal powers to help the charity and its trustees get back on track. This can include giving our legal consent to proposed changes.

This section sets out our approach and when you should report an issue to us. It explains what action we will take if the issue is serious, including when and how we carry out investigations and reports on action we have taken in such cases. It also explains how we help charities protect themselves from criminal and terrorist abuse.
