What is a registered Charity?
A national commission registers organisations that are charitable by
law. The Commission must deem the registered charity's aims [and
sometimes the methods of achieving these aims] as exclusively
charitable; it has the responsibility towards the public to only
register organisations established in good faith which foster
charitable aims and objectives. The commissions exist to ensure that
charities use their resources in effectively and to ensure that the
public's faith in charities continues to be justified.
The Register of Charities contains details of registered charities. The
information on the Register is an extract of what charities must
legally provide and can be accessed by members of the general public.
The Commissions continually monitor the charities activities by means
of annual returns and accounts, which the Board is legally responsible
for preparing. All registered charities are subject to the supervisory
and investigative powers of the respective Commission.
