U.S./world – Charity probe – No-confidence seen

 | 

The government is conducting a six-month review of charity law in England and Wales, the SocietyGuardian in London reported June 20.

Critics of the Charity Commission say the probe into the legal and regulatory oversight of the charitable sector is a slap at the regulatory body, the SocietyGuardian said.

The commission has faced long-standing criticism for low public confidence in charities, the newspaper said.

The commission has been accused, among other things, of failing to limit high fundraising costs or aggressive fundraising strategies.
