DSC Policy Briefing: Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill

In December 2015, DSC submitted written evidence and amendments to the Public Bill Committee considering the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill. 

The legislation is quite technical, but in summary if enacted it would enhance the Charity Commission’s powers to issue official warnings to charities, to wind up charities and move their assets to other charities, and to disqualify trustees with certain criminal records or if the Commission believes them to be unfit to be charity trustees. It is this last class of proposed changes that DSC is most concerned with. Click on the image below to view our briefing.
