Award shows regulator is full of good ideas

The Charity Commission has won the overall award for best public sector idea at the Idea of the Year Competition 2008.

The commission scooped the accolade for its Stop, Think, Write initiative, launched in July 2007, which is intended to improve the quality and consistency of communication from the regulatory body's charity services division.

The annual contest is organised by IdeasUK, a not-for-profit association that promotes and provides guidance on employee suggestion schemes.

Andrew Hind, chief executive of the Charity Commission, said he was delighted with the award. "It acknowledges the importance of clear, responsive and focused communication and information, which is essential to us as an effective regulator," he said.

Awards were also given for best ideas in technology, organisation, customer services, environment, finance and accounting, productivity and health and safety.
