The Oasis Charitable Trust is to meet Camila Batmanghelidjh, the former chief executive of the collapsed children's charity Kids Company, to discuss how it might continue to work with her.

Charities and individuals who bring cases to the charity tribunal could be charged up to £600 because the government has said it wants to go ahead with plans to introduce fees.

The decision by the banking giant HSBC to withdraw services from the aid charity Islamic Relief hampered the charity’s efforts to provide tents for the victims of last year’s earthquakes in Nepal, the charity has said.

The former chair of the Asda Foundation has admitted stealing £180,000 from the charity to help fund his partner’s dance company.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has served an enforcement notice on the Alzheimer’s Society and criticised the charity for displaying a "disappointing attitude" towards handling the sensitive personal data of its beneficiaries.

Anna Turley, the shadow minister for civil society, has been unsuccessful in her attempt to add a clause to the charities bill to reverse the "chilling effect" of the lobbying act.
