New guidance published for dormant charities

The Charity Commission has published new guidance for inactive or ineffective charities.

The aim of the ‘Revitalising Trusts’ programme is to encourage dormant charities to either close and transfer their assets or to change their purposes to become more effective.

Its aim is to help charities who find it hard to spend their income on the public benefit. Charity trustees can get help from the programme, and should discuss their charity’s future, if it is hard for the charity to:

  • get new trustees
  • spend your income
  • identify beneficiaries
  • find time to run the charity
