Interim charities regulator to be appointed in ROI by next month in wake of CRC revelations


Minister Shatter said recent revelations about the Central Remedial Clinic had damaged public trust and confidence in the charitable sector. He said the establishment of a regulator for the sector would provide accountability and transparency which would allow trust to begin to be restored.

Getting ready for the new Charity Commission: Charity Regulation and Good Governance

With the New Charity Commission for NI about to open its register for charities within weeks and the obligation for charities to comply with new charity legislation there has never been a better time to get your house in order and ensure that your Committee / Board understands its legal responsibilities.  I offer one and two day workshops which covers the “must know” information every board / committee member of a charity. It will raise the confidence and effectiveness of your board /committee and prepare you for charity registration.
