Dorset Charities Reminded to Submit Details on Spending


7:42am 1st July 2014

128 charities in Dorset haven't given information to the Charity Commission about how they spent their money over the last financial year.

Failure to submit the documents, which are now overdue, is a criminal offence.

The commissions warning it can also damage public confidence in how donations are spent.

Sam Younger, CEO of the Charity Commission said;

"The Commission sends numerous reminders and regulatory advice warnings to charities in default. We will not tolerate charities that demonstrate contempt for the public they are accountable to be failing to meet report requirements and I am urging all overdue charities in Dorset to file now."
