Commission offers example report for international aid charities

Regulator adds to public benefit guidance

The Charity Commission has published an example trustees' annual report for international aid charities, aimed at helping them report on their public benefit.

The report is about a fictional charity called Aid Overseas that operates in the areas of public health, sustainable development, humanitarian emergency aid, campaigning and education.

Andrew Hind, chief executive of the Charity Commission, said the report had been published in response to requests from the sector. "The example is not a template, but we hope it will prove a useful tool for trustees as they report on their public benefit for the first time in the next set of annual accounts published after 31 March 2009," he said.

The regulator has already published another seven example reports for different kinds of charities, including mosques, fee-charging schools, parochial church councils, grant-giving trusts and arts charities.
