Appeals against Charity Commission

Appealing a Decision made by The Charity Commission

The Charity Commission has a wide range of powers to make decisions about charities in England and Wales. Those decisions range from whether or not to register an organisation as a charity, through decisions made in the course of providing advice, guidance and support to charitable organisations in England and Wales, to decisions about how to deal with cases of suspected abuse or maladministration.

If you think the Charity Commission has made the wrong decision, you can ask them to for a Decision Review. This process is to check that  they have exercised their powers correctly and consistently with their statutory objectives. A review will usually be undertaken within 3 months. It will be managed by the Final Decision and Tribunal Team (the FDT team). The decision you receive following the decision review process is the Commission’s final decision.

If you do not wish to go through the Charity Commission Decision Review procedure, you can apply to The Charity Tribunal. This tribunal is independent from the Charity Commission.
