Officer’s kit

Being an officer of a charity means you have certain responsibilities and obligations.
The Commission has brought together some helpful tools and resources to help you. Whether you're wanting to brush up on the basics, or to find answers to specific questions, our kit should be your first port of call. There are even some quizzes, so you can test your knowledge!

Registration decisions

Some applications for registration received by the Commission are declined. Some charities are deregistered for failure to comply with the Charities Act. Read about the formal process and law that governs these decisions and access useful documents and lists that will help to define the legal meaning of charitable purpose.
