The Charity Commission is the UK government’s body responsible for regulating charities based in, fundraising in, or otherwise operating in the UK.
Via its website the commission offers interested visitors the opportunity to search for individual charities. Guides on founding and registering charities are included for those investigating the possibility, whilst details on finance reporting and the commission’s own role in governmental oversight are likewise detailed.
An important part of Britain’s charitable landscape since 2007, the functions underlining the Charity Commission can be traced back to the very beginning of the Victorian era.
