The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland has this week launched a new blog, which will offer information, updates and advice straight from the Commission’s management team.
The blog, a new development for the charity regulator, has gone live this week with the Commission’s first post, which is focused on the annual reporting duties of registered charities.
Welcoming the publication, the Commission’s Chief Executive Frances McCandless looked forward to seeing the blog grow into an informative and accessible resource for charity trustees.
She commented: “Working alongside our website and newsletter, this new blog will provide the public with a fresh way to keep updated on our work and other charity regulation news.
“I look forward to seeing the blog grow over coming months, with posts and discussions on a wide variety of topics and issues, as well as updates on Commission events and activities.”
The Commission’s first post Annual reporting – the next chapter for registered charities has been penned by the Commission’s Monitoring and Compliance Manager, Fiona Muldoon.
It provides an overview of annual reporting requirements for registered charities, as well as the benefits annual reporting will bring to charities and the wider public.
Future posts will include an overview of the Commission’s progress during the 2015-16 year, a focus on new research into public trust and confidence in Northern Ireland’s charities and information on Trustees Week 2016.
