Majority agree with Commission's role investigating terror links
More than half of Third Sector Online readers agree with the Government's plans to get the Charity Commission more involved in investigating links to terrorism.
Last week, Charity Commission chief executive Andrew Hind told Third Sector that he had no concerns about a government consultation document that tells the regulator to boost its investigative capacity to protect the sector from terrorist abuse.
However, Helen Donohoe, head of campaigns and communication at the NCVO, accused the Government of fuelling mistrust of charities. "It would be great if the commission had more resources, but we want more of the same - not a load of extra responsibilities," she said.
This week’s poll asks: Does the voluntary sector need an independent research body similar to the Institute of Fiscal Studies? Have your say by completing the poll on the Third Sector Online homepage.
