Charity Commission's Faith and Social Cohesion Unit puts resources online

Soon-to-be-closed section makes guidelines available

The Charity Commission’s Faith and Social Cohesion Unit, which closes at the end of this month, has made a range of resources for faith-based charities available online.

The unit was set up in October 2007 with a £1.2m grant from the Communities and Local Government department. It worked primarily with Muslim charities and encouraged them to register with the commission. The grant ran out at the end of April.

The resources include guidance on how to register as a faith-based charity, along with case studies of mosques to demonstrate good governance. These will join guidance that is already available on the commission website.

Rosie Chapman, executive director of policy effectiveness at the commission, said: "We hope that these practical tools will help faith-based charities prepare for registration with the commission as well as assisting existing charities develop their governance structures."
