Strategy Unit issues reforms for charity law and regulation

The Government has published its long-awaited proposals for a shake-up of charity law and regulation. The review from the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit, entitled Private Action, Public Good, is intended to enable the sector to grow and charities to be more effective and entrepreneurial while protecting public trust.

It contains proposals on everything from the criteria for charitable status, the regulation of fundraising, a relaxation of restrictions on trading and campaigning activities, and robust reform of the Charity Commission and the creation of an independent tribunal to allow organisations to challenge the regulator's decisions.

The Government is allowing the next three months for consultation on the proposals.
