Big increase in serious incidents

The number of serious incidents reported by charities to the Charity Commission rose by two-thirds over the past year, according to the regulator's annual report. The report shows that the commission received 2,129 reports of serious incidents in 2014/15, up from 1,280 in the previous year, after various efforts to improve trustees' awareness of the obligation to report such incidents. The report outlines the regulator's work in the year to 31 March 2015 and was published alongside its strategic plan for 2015-18.
