Angela wants to make her constituents aware of a new feature launched by the Charity Commission to help people search for information on organisations that are local to them.
The register – available at https://register-of-charities.charitycommission.gov.uk/ – is an important national asset that receives millions of views per year, demonstrating a considerable and growing public appetite for information about charities.
The new register display increases transparency about how charities are run, and how they manage their finances.
For example, the public will now be able to find information about salaries paid to senior staff members (in bands, upwards from £60k), whether a charity’s trustees are remunerated and its income, if any, from government contracts.
Constituents can search for local organisations here – https://register-of-charities.charitycommission.gov.uk/constituency-search
