The Charity Commission set up an inquiry into the Maclean Trust, which provides wheelchair training for disabled people, following concerns about poor financial controls and governance within the charity. Founding trustee Suzanne Maclean resigned during the course of the investigation and later launched a legal action against the trust to reclaim money she claims to have loaned it.
The year-long inquiry closed in September last year, with new trustees and better management procedures established.
But following further problems including a fire that destroyed the charity's records, the new trustees decided to close the charity down.
Suffolk Police are viewing the fire as arson, but have not charged anyone in connection with it. No trustee was implicated in the police investigation, according to the Commission.
