It does not set out new rules or regulations itself, but draws together relevant law and practice in setting out six principles to help trustees ensure their arrangements for working with a linked body secure the charity’s interests and independence.These six principles are:Recognising the risksNot furthering non-charitable purposesOperating independentlyAvoiding unauthorised personal benefit and addressing conflicts of interestMaintaining your charity’s separate identityProtecting your charityIt also covers what to do when things go wrong, and how to apply to register as a charity with a connection to a non-charity.Helen Stephenson, CEO of the Charity Commission, said:“As regulator, we want charities to thrive and inspire trust, and we know relationships with non-charitable organisations can help a charity deliver on its purposes. But operating alongside other organisations should always be well considered and trustees must manage the risks that can arise carefully, and with probity.“Charities hold special status in society and the public rightly have high expectations of them, including that they are driven only by their charitable mission and purpose and that they work to defend and promote their independence from non-charitable organisations at all times. No charity should ever use or be used by non-charitable organisations to pursue uncharitable interests.” Advertisementcenter_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
