Majority of groups remain unaware of charity law review

Two-thirds of organisations are unaware of the Government review of charity law, according to new findings.

The annual charity survey from Charles Russell, released today at the law firm's charity conference, reveals that 66 per cent of respondents had never heard of the report, which promises to result in the biggest change to charity law in 400 years.

The survey was carried out before the Strategy Unit unveiled its recommendations following months of debate with the sector.

Simon Morys, leader of the Strategy Unit review, said: "It is notoriously difficult to reach all parts of the charitable sector but the Strategy Unit and Home Office have been congratulated by many in the sector for the efforts they are making to reach out to as many parts of the sector as they can."

Sixty-one per cent said it would improve public confidence, while 57 per cent believe it will make charities more accountable.
