Charity Tribunal begins recruitment

Applications close today in the first round of recruitment for the Charity Tribunal, the body that will provide a low-cost appeals process against Charity Commission decisions from next January.

The tribunal was created by the Charities Act 2006 to provide a quick and easy appeals route for charities unable to afford to challenge the commission in the High Court.

The tribunal president and five legally qualified members are being recruited in the first round. The president, who must be a solicitor or barrister with at least two years’ service in a judicial office, will be paid £123,200. Panel members will receive £450 per day.

The Judicial Appointments Commission expects to begin recruiting seven lay members with knowledge and experience of the third sector in September.
