The Charity Commission’s clear purpose is to ensure that charity can thrive and inspire trust so that people can improve lives and strengthen society.
In 2020-21, the two overarching areas of focus were as follows: being open for business and becoming a better, more professional organisation. The global health emergency has presented unprecedented challenges, requiring the implementation of a third priority of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of COVID-19 has only served to emphasise the importance of their work to secure the bond between the public and charities and to continually support the resilience of the sector.
Despite the uncertainty and disruption the pandemic has brought, the aims and ambitions set out in the 2020-21 Business Plan remained highly relevant, with the organisation continuing to provide the help and support for charities to continue to operate effectively.
The Charity Commission is now part-way through their investment in being a better, smarter, more targeted and sure-footed regulator. Significant progress has been made against their five-year strategy, but there is more that needs to be done.
