The Charity Commision has published updated guidance about how it intends to use the powers to issue official warnings and to disqualify individuals from trusteeship, following feedback to draft guidance published earlier this year.

NCVO, the Association of Charitable Foundations, the Charity Law Group and others were highly critical of the original guidance for both the new powers and called for clarity around a number of areas. The commission said it had received almost 100 responses to the two consultations. It held further discussions and workshops with stakeholders to identify the additional information and clarity that the sector had asked for.

Both powers came into force in the autumn.
