Commission evaluates running of Charity Logistics

The Charity Commission has concluded an "evaluation" of "serious regulatory issues" at Charity Logistics.

The commission confirmed that it had been contacted by a number of sources concerned about the running of the sector services organisation, but decided the issues were not serious enough to warrant a formal investigation.

A spokesman said the trustees had been "100 per cent co-operative", adding: "We are working with them to get the organisation back to a proper constitutional and administrative footing." Charity Logistics said it was involved in a "major legal dispute" that "threatens the charity", but had been advised by its solicitors to give no details.

- Last week's Third Sector incorrectly stated that George Cook had left Charity Logistics to run the Charity Disaster Recovery Network, a former Charity Logistics project. In fact, the network remains part of Charity Logistics.

Cook has left Charity Logistics to work on Community Resilience, a disaster recovery project for local authorities, NHS trusts and police forces.

He is also working on Digital Inclusion, a project that sends computers to Africa.
